The UQ Statistics Society (UQSS) has existed as part of UQ’s Student Association of Science Societies (SASS) for a number of years. Last year’s UQSS executive team provided some great social events and networking opportunities for its members. They also ran a tutoring session in the lead up to exams, a huge boon to students enrolled in statistics courses. This year we aim to replicate the success in these areas and build on the society’s reach and influence. We will bring a renewed focus on industry networking, and expand the scope of our activities to modern applications, such as data science and machine learning.
Our generous sponsors include Biarri, a Commercial Mathematics firm.
