About this event

There is much hype around Big Data, Analytics and Data Science but what do these fields offer Civil Engineering? In two presentations, John and James will demystify these rapidly evolving fields, share examples where mathematical, statistical and computing methods have made a big impact on engineering and offer insights into the adoption of data-driven decision making in other sectors.

5:30 to 8:00 PM, talk starts 6pm.
