N Brown Industry Problem Solving Event
Alan Turing Building
17 October 2-5pm

The N Brown Day is an industry problem solving event for undergraduate and postgraduate students from The University of Manchester. N Brown is an online retailer, headquartered in Manchester, which offers a range of products; predominantly clothing, footwear and homewares. The challenge is to apply your mathematical (and possibly programming) skills to solve a real-world problem that they face. You will gain insight into how your maths is likely to be applied once the event is over.

The most creative teams will be invited to the N Brown office in the Northern Quarter on the 1st of November to present their work to a team of Data Scientists!
