Dean of Arts and Science Barbara Crow invites undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to submit original works of data visualization to be considered for the Data Visualization Prize. It is an opportunity for students to show off their data visualization skills and research. Data visualizations may include everything from charts, to graphs, to maps, to 3D models. The visualizations should be interactive, and can be animated or web-based stories designed to enhance the communication of original research findings.


Test-drive a career and gain a competitive edge with a paid, professional internship. Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) provides an opportunity to participate in a 12-16 month work experience after your second or third year of studies.
