MSc Placement Programme Success Stories: Ecaterina Vidrascu

Ecaterina Vidrascu joined the Data Lab MSc placement programme in May 2020, while undertaking her course in Data Science at Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University (RGU).  She did her placement as an Alexa Skill Developer at TL Tech – Smart Home Solutions.

It was so successful that TL Tech offered her a permanent position and she now works remotely for the company from her new home in Manchester. The project she worked on, which was to develop a voice application for assessing wellbeing, will soon be available in the Amazon Alexa Skills Store.

Find out more about her story in our Case Study.



Could your organisation benefit from the latest knowledge of data science, data engineering and AI technologies?

The Data Lab’s MSc placement programme is open for any Scottish organisation with an idea for a short data science project of 8-12 weeks.  Our highly motivated data students are keen to put the technical skills learnt in their academic MSc courses to work in the real world, and can bring real benefits.
