    A mistimed rainstorm can ruin any hope of a profitable harvestWestem Science News - Juy 16, 2015

    Weather, being quite a whole-hearted practitioner of the adage, "the only constant is change" keeps us guessing with altered seasons, varying wind patterns and mood-swings in temperature.

  • Consulting Workshop (Tuesday, September 08, 2015)
    Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm and Room: WSC 248
    Speaker: Dr. David Bellhouse

    For the past year the Department has operated the Data Analytics Help Centre (DAHC) in Weldon Library, essentially a statistical consulting service available to anyone on campus. A number of our graduate students have gained valuable consulting experience through working in the DAHC.

    For those interested in working in the DAHC in the coming year or for those who are just interested in learning about consulting, I will be running a consulting workshop on Tuesday September 8. The workshop will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will be held in Room 248 of the Western Science Centre. Whenever the workshop finishes (4:00 p.m. at the latest) we can retire to the Grad Club for further conversation, refreshment and the opportunity to meet new colleagues.
