Data Science challenges: An Open Discussion with the University of Exeter (London)

Event information

We are delighted to invite you to an open discussion of our exciting new MSc Data Science (Professional) programme at the Medical Research Council, Kemble Street, London.

This is an opportunity for businesses and individuals to learn more about the University and the MSc Data Science (Professional) programme, and to provide us with feedback about the support we offer to individuals and partner organisations to develop.

Dr Hywel Williams, our programme convenor, will lead an overview of the programme including syllabus, pedagogy and delivery. There will be extensive opportunity for discussion with University colleagues who are involved in the course, as well as sharing experiences with other employers.

Please bring your current data science challenges: we aim to help you work towards solutions through a greater understanding of your issues.

We aim to finish just after 12.30 when you are free to leave, or to stay and share a buffet lunch with us.
