Data Science Event

It was nice to talk to students who didn't really know much about Data Science and to discuss various career options and how to get into the area.

Description of event: The event is an opportunity for data science practitioners using predictive analytics and machine learning to turn unstructured data into decision making tools, to meet and discuss their work and career opportunities in a networking style environment.  Participants will get a free entry in the web programme (both Flip-book and linear listing) which remain live for a year, and a page in the printed programme, distributed to students as they arrive.

Date/times/Location: Wednesday 29 January 2020, 13.00 - 17.00.  The event returns to the University Centre, Granta Place, Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RU, where most careers events are held.  (The West Cambridge venue is no longer available as it is being repurposed.)

Open To: Organisations offering full time or internship roles in data science from small start-ups to larger organisations across all sectors - who will send a data-science practitioner.

Cost: £430 + VAT

Stand: Up to two 'banner' stands (maximum width 80cm).
