University of Stirling ‘Aye Robot’

It was great to attend the Universities Scotland reception ‘Aye, Robot: Giving graduates the power to pivot in the age of automation’ in the Scottish Parliament.

Whilst at the event, I had the opportunity to catch up with representatives from the University of Stirling to hear about the university’s efforts to equip students and graduates with the skills and understanding necessary to succeed in a fast-moving world.

In particular, it was good to learn more about the university’s work with employers to design cutting edge programmes such as the MSc in Big Data, and hear first-hand from a recent graduate of the programme about how the course prepares the next generation of data scientists to meet the evolving skills challenges of the digital age.

I look forward to continuing to work closely with the university in the years ahead.
