Cirium collaborates on education and research initiatives

An MBA group from Cranfield University worked together on a ‘Cirium Project’, and presented it to the Cirium team.


Bianca Chivu, Aviation Management student

Taking part in a complex event like the Hackathon was a great experience. I was fortunate to meet a lot of like-minded individuals which I was able to share my experience with, and gain knowledge from, which expanded my boundaries. I was also able to learn the importance of a diverse and dedicated team when conducting a consultancy project.

Developing a project was a challenging experience that ultimately, I was able to grow and learn from. The female presence within the Cirium team was empowering and inspirational.

Overall, the Hackathon was a distinguished experience that gave me the skills and experience to pursue my passion for a career in aviation. I would encourage any female student to participate in a hackathon and see for themselves the amazing things they can achieve.

As a computer science student, I found this hackathon to be extremely beneficial. As the task was a real-world problem with many technical operations, it allowed me to apply topics and skills learned at university, such as data science and R. Despite my lack of prior aviation knowledge, my team members, who were aviation management students, assisted me in understanding the data as well as many other aviation concepts. 

Our team’s diversified experience, was crucial which ultimately led to our win.

This partnership not only improved my understanding of the subject, but it also piqued my interest in the aviation industry. With the opportunity to intern, I am excited to learn more about the industry and make a positive contribution to the company.

Maheen Fatima, Aviation Management student

Participating in the Cirium Hackathon was a unique and exciting experience. Initially, I was hesitant to join the event, but the Cirium team empowered and encouraged everyone. They provided a comfortable and supportive environment for all the students so they could perform to the best of their ability.

I appreciated the creative and multi-disciplinary nature of the hackathon. The event brought together participants studying data science and aviation management to work together on an aviation related project. It was inspiring to see how people of different backgrounds and perspectives came together and demonstrated problem solving and teamwork.

As a female student, I believe hackathon was a great learning experience which helped me not only to learn more about data science, consulting and the amazing work people at Cirium do, but also it provided me an opportunity to learn more about myself. The Cirium hackathon is an excellent opportunity which should not be missed. I am very grateful for being able to participate and would highly recommend it.

Cirium Early Careers  — Events

Stay tuned for upcoming Cirium events. In March of 2023 we ran two Hackathons at Coventry University and the University of Southampton.

The Coventry University event was a first of its kind for Cirium, a ‘cross-disciplined hackathon’, where teams from Aviation Management, Data Science and Computer Science tackled a Cirium Ground Events Challenge. As in business, the students experienced how various disciplines collaborate to consult and solve problems.  

We asked the Coventry participants to analyze downtime between flights of 5 airlines, to see whether airlines can operate more efficiently or can learn from one another.  So, how quickly does an aircraft turnaround at one airport compared to another, how do airlines compare to one another operationally when scheduling their aircraft usage and are they maximizing the use of their aircraft?
