Events and Highlights

Being a new and uprising field, the main purpose of the club is to bring about a sense of subject understanding. The club has held information sessions as well as software workshops for SQL, Hadoop, Stata and Python, which provided an introduction to how these languages work. 

This year, the club aims to make use of the student body's skills in data analytics through case competitions and workshops. The group will continue to hold information sessions with experts, alumni, and professionals in data and business analytics, with the goal of helping students find jobs and internships in those fields.
