The projects provided by our industry partners were both diverse and challenging, and it was wonderful to see how well our interns rose to the challenge.

Each of the presentations gave a fascinating insight into how the skills developed in studying mathematics, statistics, physics and data science are being applied in the workplace at a time of accelerated technological change.

Congratulations to those who presented and to our industry partners for providing the opportunities!
