Tuesday 13th October saw Rob Huggins of MBN Academy present to the first cohort of Data Lab sponsored “Masters in Data Science” students at the launch event for the course at the University of Edinburgh.

Rob joined invited guests and speakers such as Neil Logan of Lockheed Martin – Chairman of The Data Lab, Kent McKenzie of Deloitte, Dr. Malcolm Fairweather of SportScotland and George Theologou of Skyscanner in a day of presentations, discussions and workshops – all designed to enlighten the new MSc. students of the potential career opportunities that they might take advantage of upon graduation.

In a presentation and follow-up Q and A session, Rob spoke about some of the work that MBN Solutions are doing within the Scottish Data Science sector at present, some of the successes that he has had in the past with Data Science related projects within areas such as Big Data, Machine Learning and IoT, the most valued hard and soft skills that employers are looking for within the sector and the rewards that qualified Data Scientists could look forward to when in role.

The day concluded with Rob and the other speakers joining the 40 students for drinks and a networking session before wishing them well for their future studies. We look forward to engaging with both The Data Lab and the MSc. Data Science students in future.
