Tell us about your current internship. I am currently doing my internship in an information system consulting firm. We develop the information systems of human resources for some companies and our customers ask to add Big Data offers in their systems. Therefore, my job is to find some ways to use big data techniques and to get some insights.
Describe your experience at DSTI in 3 words. I prefer to use a sentence to describe DSTI: “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
What are the strenghts of DSTI?
Motivation: DSTI accepts students according to their motivation and not only because of their background.
International environment: At DSTI, we meet a lot of nationalities and this helps us to develop ourselves in the data science field and to exchange with everyone.
Real projects: We worked with a big French bank. This allowed us to apply and improve what we learned throughout the year on a real professional case.
What advice would you give to future students? You need to work in team because it is very important to increase your level in Data Science fast.
