Data science is a growth area for jobs, with an increasing number of employers seeking candidates who can use scientific principles to analyse large, often unstructured data sets to find patterns, solve problems and support decision making. 

Data Science is an emerging, ‘trendy’ discipline and it’s important to get the facts.  What background do you need? What do they actually do? What tools and techniques are used? 

This pop-up event brings together 20+ active Data Scientists from a wide range of areas, who can give you insight into what their jobs entail, what skills are needed to become a Data Scientist, and how you can explore data science as a career opportunity.
