Waymark Tech sponsors 2016 Science to Data Science programme



Waymark Tech Ltd is pleased to be sponsoring the forthcoming S2DS 2016 London workshop.

Skilled data scientists are in great demand on the European job market currently and PhDs with analytical backgrounds make excellent data scientists. The S2DS five week workshop trains analytical PhDs and scientists in the commercial tools and techniques needed to be hired into data science roles. The aim of the workshop is to create a pipeline of high quality, commercial data science talent.

Solve a real-life, big data problem

We believe in learning by doing.
The main coursework will be to complete a real life big data problem supplied by sponsor companies such as Waymark Tech Ltd. The project will be solved in teams of 3-4 and should take approximately 4.5 weeks of full time work.

Practical, professional development

Our project will give the team specific in-depth knowledge and skills on a particular big data topic. The curriculum is supplemented with approximately 30 hours of video lectures and exercises in a range of data and software topics as well as professional development and business skills.

The program lasts for five weeks, with company presentations and panel debates running in parallel to the project work. The projects will be presented by the team at the end of the five weeks. Week four will also see a one-day networking event, introducing companies interested in hiring in this sector. Expect an intense but exciting experience.
