This year we are going virtual. Register to attend throughout the day to hear from local executives, alumni in the field, and student peers presenting on topics including data analytics, machine learning, and block chain. Learn from local big data experts how topics learned in class translate into the work being done in businesses.

Get your questions answered during live Q & A sessions. How do you find results in the data? What functions in a company does as a data scientist do? How can you best relay those results to clients?

Connect in virtual breakouts and listen to panels with alumni and employers in the field. What skills are employers looking for in the field? Should I get my Masters and Ph.D. in the field?

Cost: Free; RSVP Required

Virtual Open House Format: Attendees are encouraged to come and go throughout the day as their schedule and interests allows. Return to this page for a full speaker schedule to be announced in February!
