Overview

If you are someone who is looking to explore a career in the field of data, this is something you do not want to miss!

This FREE networking event held on Zoom is open to students from any faculty, so it is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in data, even if you do not have much of a background in the field. We will be connecting you with our panel of 7 industry professionals who are data scientists, engineers, and consultants from various industries such as technology, consulting, and banking. They will be sharing their own unique journeys throughout their careers and answering YOUR questions.

Timeline

The first hour of the event will be an engaging panel discussion with 7 professionals who will be answering your questions concerning their career experience and their insights in data analytics.

In the second half, groups of students will have the chance to network with the professionals in separate breakout rooms. There will be three 20-minute-long sessions, and we will try to assign each student to a variety of professionals.
