Students engaging with our Instructors

Twenty four bright and eager University of Toronto students took time out of their hectic midterm schedules to learn from two of our amazing instructors.

From our Python Instructor, they learned about the kind of work a data professional does, the tools they use everyday, and how to practice using these tools currently.

From our Machine Learning Instructor, students learned popular machine learning applications, how they are used in industry and how students can begin to learn these tools.

After the presentations, students had ample time to network with our instructors. They asked questions about the content and spoke with our management team to help determine if a data career is right for them.

If you are considering a career as a data professional our team is happy to consult with you. We can help determine if a data career is right for you and how you can best launch your career (even if Lantern Institute is not the right option for you).

Thank you to the event attendees, the University of Toronto for hosting us, and the amazing team at the University of Toronto Career Centre for helping with the event organization and promotion. If you were unable to attend this event, keep an eye out for future workshops!
