Update Data Science Meet & Greet
Update Data Science Meet & Greet
On Wednesday November 21st, 2018, we will organize the Data Science Meet & Greet. 13 Of our member organizations and 170 students will meet each other.
The preparations are in full swing. The participating member organizations are busy preparing a 10 minute pitch, which will give the students a good idea of the daily practice of data science. This is the event that brings the daily practice and education closer together!
High number of participating students
The interest from the students is overwhelming. 170 Students have registered. Even from Maastricht and Groningen there are enthusiastic students on the list of participants. All students have the motivation to discover the daily activities of a data scientist, who are working at a large corporate, and to establish contacts for a possible 1st job, graduation project or traineeship.
In just one afternoon the students will get information from these 13 members of the CIO Platform Nederland:
Every organization will give a pitch on the 21st of November. An impression of the diversity of subjects:
