MSc success story with Marine Scotland

MSc Placement Programme Success Stories: Georgios Orfanakis

Georgios Orfanakis joined the Data Lab MSc placement programme in May 2020, while undertaking his course in Data Science at Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University (RGU). When the global pandemic struck, RGU moved its courses online and Georgios returned to his native Greece to complete his studies.

The pandemic lockdown meant that he had to complete his 12-week placement with Marine Scotland, completely remotely, a situation which brought challenges, but which has also reaped benefits.
