e-Placement Scotland and The Data Lab are delighted to announce the confirmation of industry placements for 40 budding data scientists in Scotland. With industry uptake of these students being overwhelmingly positive, we are now looking to partner with a further 20 employers, based specifically in Aberdeen and Dundee.
As a bit of background, e-Placement Scotland recently teamed up with The Data Lab Innovation Centre, The University of Stirling, The University of Dundee and Robert Gordon University in an effort to find high quality industry placements for a specialised group of Data Science MSc students.
All confirmed employers are now in the process of submitting their project proposals, with the placements due to commence in June 2016. If your organisation could benefit from a talented data science student on a three month placement over Summer 2016, please get in touch.
You can find out more information here, which also includes further links to The Data Lab and each of the participating universities.
