You’re invited to meet data science students at all levels (Undergraduates, Masters and PhDs) with the opportunity to pitch why your company is somewhere they’d want to work. This is the first in a new series of networking events designed to bring together a new generation of data scientists with the leaders in industry who want to employ them.
Why DISCUS – what can we do for you?
DISCUS at the University of Sussex brings together data science students, researchers, leaders from industry and senior academics to shape the future of data science & AI in both industry and academia.
We co-organise the Sussex Data Science Meetup, which has a membership of ~500. We’re interested in working with you to fill the UK’s digital & data science skills gap while also showcasing our extraordinary students.
How the event will run
We’ll kick off at 7pm, giving each organisation 2 minutes (you can also share 1 slide) to pitch to an audience of approximately 50 students.
From 8pm onwards we’ll open up the floor for networking with drinks and canapes. Because we know networking events can be intimidating for some, we’ll also operate a matching service where we’ll make introductions by email after the event.
