Coventry University’s ‘Aviation Week’
In February of 2024, Cirium Early Careers had the pleasure of joining industry leaders and experts at Coventry University Aviation Industry Day to discuss the challenges and opportunities for building a Sustainable Future for the Aviation Industry.
Jeremy Bowen CEO at Cirium, gave an insightful presentation on the importance of data driven decision making, especially as corporations are increasingly being held accountable for their own flight generated emissions. A panel discussion raised how Cirium is also addressing demands by offering ‘precise’ aircraft, emissions and fuel consumption data to support the industry navigate a more sustainable future.
Thought provoking presentations from industry leaders, a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and engage with the next generation of emerging aviation management talent!

Hackathoning our way into a Cirium Internship
by Olly Atkins and Joe Barnett
Hackathon events are hosted across top UK universities and this is how we (Olly Atkins and Joe Barnett) began our journey with Cirium.
To Aviation Management students like us, the thought of a ‘Hackathon’ seemed rather daunting at first – but this emphasises the value of the multidisciplinary nature of the Coventry hackathon. During the event, we teamed up with Data Science student and Cirium intern Vanshul Kumar, forming a multidisciplinary team (similar to those seen across Cirium). Our aviation knowledge and project management experience, coupled with Vanshul’s ability to tackle large datasets proved crucial, allowing us to utilise our combined strengths to best conduct the analysis required for the task. With the right team, 1+1=3.
Being part of different teams, our experience and our day-to-day tasks differed. Based within the Product Team, Joe was involved with the expansion of the Customer Advisory Board (CAB). And, Olly joined the Diio team in the US in R&D+D, and worked on a project to shape the future of a Diio tool.
In addition to our main tasks, we had the pleasure of hosting an unconference session at the UK Cirium Connect event. This was a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure to colleagues, giving them an insight into what we’ve been up to while having a bit of fun along the way!
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.
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.
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?
