About the Symposium
This symposium is being hosted to provide Purdue Chemical Engineering students with a broad understanding of data science and its importance and application to our discipline. It will also highlight how Purdue and the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering are integrating data science and illustrate how students can get involved. The Symposium will feature an array of speakers from industry, academic research and education. We welcome all current, future and potential chemical engineering undergraduates, professional masters and doctoral students. 

Speaker information, including biographies, is available here.
