Student Projects in Forecasting

The Lancaster Centre for Forecasting is offering a range of student projects for this summer. The students start on their projects in late May 2008 and work on an in-house forecasting problem until late September 2007, with joint supervision between the company and experts from the Forecasting Centre.

All students are supervised by a member of staff and can be based in Lancaster with visits to your organisation as necessary, or can work on site in your organisation with visits from their Lancaster supervisor as necessary to ensure the successful completion of the project.

These projects can be a particularly cost effective way for a company to carry out work for which it cannot find the internal resources, to recruit new team members or to efficiently buy in external know-how. Our post-graduate students are technically well qualified; they all have good first degrees in a discipline with significant quantitative material and have been following a variety of courses at Lancaster in techniques, statistics, computing skills, methodology and applications of Operational Research & Management Science in general, and Forecasting and Data Mining in particular.

Please get in touch via email at if you would like to discuss possibilities or if you would like further information.
