Research & Career-Building
University research centers can be treasure trove for motivated students. For instance, Purdue’s Krenicki Center for Business Analytics & Machine Learning organizes student events such as data dives, case competitions & workshops, and it partners with companies on real-world projects. At IU, there’s the Institute of Business Analytics and the Network Science Institute (IUNI), which is involved in multiple big data projects and has ties to the Midwest Big Data Hub. Over at IUB’s School of Informatics, Computing & Engineering, you can explore research centers in Machine Learning, AI, and Data to Insight. Or take advantage of all the events & career opportunities in the Data Science Program.
If you’re anxious to attend major league conferences like INFORMS, SIGKDD, and IEEE, check to see what’s happening in cities like Chicago or Detroit. You won’t be too far away from the action. Can’t afford to travel? You may wish to investigate local meetup groups, Krenicki Center events, and homegrown conferences such as Innovation Digi (formerly Indy Big Data). IU also hosts a Learning Analytics Summit that’s focused on higher education stakeholders.
