Research & Career-Building
UK funds a number of research centers—take a moment to explore work being done at the Center for Computational Sciences (CCS) and the Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI). The CCS has Special Interest Groups (SIGS) in specific analytics areas. Over at WKU, you’ll find the Center for Applied Data Analytics (CADA). It encourages student & faculty project collaborations and hosts ongoing workshops (e.g. SAS® training). If you’re interested in the University of Louisville, we also recommend you check out all of the labs within the Department of Computer Science & Engineering.
Serious analytics professionals will need to travel in order to network—big industry organizations like IEEE, PAW, and INFORMS don’t often visit Kentucky. However, you may wish to bookmark local events like the Kentucky Digital Government Summit (KDGS) and city-specific meetups listed in the Louisville Tech Event Calendar.
