If you’re looking to secure a paid summer internship related to maths in summer 2017 and be in with the chance of winning £1000 cash prize, look no further. At npower we’ve just launched our Forecasting Challenge competition which is aimed at penultimate year undergraduate students studying a numerate or analytical subject.
We’re challenging you, the students of Britain, to beat our forecast. In teams of between two and four, we want you to predict what our customers’ energy usage will be, based on weather data over a three stage online competition.
There are very few industries where forecasting is as integral to day-to-day operations as the energy industry. Having an accurate view of how much energy a customer will use is essential to ensure that we buy the right amount and minimise the costs. This is why forecasting is so important to us, and why we need you.
Make sure you register before Tuesday 1st November, it only takes 2 minutes to sign up!
This is a great opportunity to secure a summer internship without the usual application process, and a chance to utilise your maths skills in practice.
