Five data science students share stories of studies, events, and their expectations

Data Guild is an association of the data science students at Aalto University. It is a relatively new association - it was established only three years ago. Five members of the culture committee of the guild - Ilia Zalesskii, Aaron Wallasvaara, Christian Guidikov, Pranava Varshan and Rainer Ruuskanen – share why they chose to study data science and how they find the student life.
