Alumni experience

"My first job out of university was doing fraud analytics on social networks for banks and insurance companies. The ‘Programming for Scientists’ module gave me the minimum amount of programming knowledge I needed for this role, and in my interview I gave a presentation based on my fourth year project.

Within this role I was always interested in the machine learning side of analytics as it involved more maths, so I moved to working at a start-up where this is core to their business."
