I’m not an expert, but I do have a lot of friends who went this route so it seems perfectly feasible (although I also know friends who majored in physics and biochemistry who went into data science roles too, lol).

A lot of CS programs do seem to have ML classes now, which combined with data science internships would be a great setup for a future DS career. 😎 If you’re talking about a bootcamp in DS on top of a CS undergrad, I’m sure it would help but I’m also not sure if it’s 100% necessary. Best of luck with your search!
