From battling fossil fuel emissions and reducing stock market risk to helping Government departments serve citizens more effectively, data scientists are increasingly helping to change the face of business and society. That makes it an attractive career option for those looking to leave academia for a field where their work can have a more immediate impact.

But what is it really like to work as a data scientist on real world data science projects? What does day-to-day life look like? What are the upsides and downsides of data science work? 

Join alumni from the Faculty Fellowship – a programme designed to help graduates transition into commercial data science roles – to discover whether a data science career could be the right career move for you. 

You’ll hear from:

  • Ashwin Chopra (Data Scientist at Faculty)
  • Heather Wilson (Data Scientist at Napier AI)
  • Michael Kusnetsov (Data Scientist at IQVIA)
  • Tara Ganepola (Data Scientist at Faculty)
