The Rice Data Science Career Mixer provides an excellent networking opportunity, bringing together Rice students and top companies to connect and discuss potential career opportunities in computational and data science fields.

5:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.: Welcome and Company Presentations

5:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.: Networking and Breakout Session


For Companies and Alumni:

What to expect
  • Brand your organization in a casual mixer to highlight job and internship opportunities.

  • Connect with talented Rice data science and computational students (both undergraduate and professional masters students from data science, computer science, statistics, electrical and computer engineering and more! We are expecting 200+ students to attend.

  • Meet students and answer questions about data science in your industry.
