Steven's real-world experience includes working on a team that conducted an in-depth analysis of the effects of COVID-19 on the insurance industry for The Hartford and completing a risk management internship at FMC Corporation in Philadelphia. He says UHart’s data science courses give students exposure to the various analysis techniques that data scientists use and that UHart has given him the skills to adapt to any work environment.
Every professor in the department wants to see you succeed and offers help on difficult concepts, as well as provides opportunities to attend colloquiums or various network events that are set up for student career success.
