All interested students, alumni and greater UCF community members are invited to register and attend.

Why attend?

Register to attend throughout the day and hear from local executives, alumni in the field, and student peers presenting on topics including data analytics, machine learning, and blockchain. Learn from local big data experts how topics learned in class translate into the work being done in businesses.

Get your questions answered during live Q&A sessions. How do you find results in the data? What functions in a company does as a data scientist do? How can you best relay those results to clients?

Connect in virtual breakouts and listen to panels with alumni and employers in the field. What skills are employers looking for in the field?  Should I get my Masters and Ph.D. in the field?

Cost: Free; RSVP Required (Registration coming soon!)

Hybrid Open House Format: Attendees are encouraged to come and go throughout the day as their schedule allows.

Employer Tables: Local employers will be present to answer questions, discuss internships, and share information about full-time roles in this exciting and ever-growing. The Symposium concludes with a designated “meet-and-greet” networking session for students to connect with company representatives, to learn about specific career paths within each company.
