TRU, CANSSI partner to build up data science program


Thompson Rivers University has announced a partnership with the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI) to further develop the university’s data science program. CANSSI brings together statistics departments from more than 30 universities across the country to foster collaborative research and innovation. “I’m excited about the opportunities that our participation in CANSSI will open up to our students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty,” said TRU Faculty of Science Dean Dr Greg Anderson. “Our participation allows us access to various forms of support, funding and interdisciplinary collaboration that are important for TRU as we continue to develop our programming in statistics and data science.”
