Careers in Data Analytics - Panel Discussion
Sponsored by Computer Science, Mathematics, Business Management, Integrative Studies Program, Geography, Economics, SPDI
Universal use of computers has unleashed a vast amount of data that continues to grow every minute. Staff and researchers in academia, government and industry take advantage of data available to them to help them solve problems and identify opportunities. Demand is strong for people who know can use technical tools and analytical skills to uncover and tell the story hidden in the data. A panel of experts in medicine, higher education, manufacturing, logistics and telecommunication will be here to talk about a range of data analytics applications and the kinds of opportunities available in this growing field.
