At its core, the Industry Problem Solving Workshop on data analytics introduces our industry partners to the problem solving capabilities of Western's extremely talented students. The workshop assembles teams of Western undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of departments to craft novel solution strategies for challenging industrial problems.
"Challenges are exciting, collective problem solving promotes critical thinking and ultimately the development of a workable solution is gratifying and valuable. This is what happens at Western's Industrial Problem Solving Workshop when bright and energized students sit down with sector experts and local business owners to deal with real issues and obstacles affecting real companies. The workshop environment is focused on finding solutions and the results deliver outstanding benefits to our local economy and all the participants. Options and actions are created for the businesses and business owners meet potential new employees, while students get hands on experience and the chance to meet possible employers. The workshop atmosphere is electric and inspiring. This is an initiative that moves business and minds forward. It is well done and truly innovative."Honourable Joe Fontana
