Junior Freshman Students Visit Google Headquarters
May 07, 2010
A group of Junior Freshman students visited Google headquarters recently as part of their statistics module. The students had been working throughout Hilary Term in groups on statistics-related case studies that were developed by Dr Jacco Thijssen of the department in cooperation with Mr Eoghan Nolan of Google. The best performing group was invited, together with their lecturer and TA, for a tour of Google headquarters, providing some light relief in the exam period.
The case studies are a good example of how the department encourages the development of transferrable skills in students and shows its commitment to fostering close links with the business community.
