PDEng Data Science - Industrial Engineering

Industry has to deal with increasing complexity in the manufacturing and distribution networks of goods and services as well as rapid changes in products, services and technologies. Advanced logistics systems are key for achieving high performance in costs, speed, flexibility and reliability under such conditions. On the other hand, developments like Industry 4.0 offer many opportunities for digitizing the supply chain to become more efficient, agile, and customer driven.

The PDEng program Data Science at JADS (PDEng DS) responds to these developments by offering a two-year post-Master Data Science. Starting from the academic year 2018-2019, the PDEng DS offers a specialization in Industrial Engineering. This specialization is typically of interest for master students with an industrial engineering background, who want to broaden in the field of Data Science. The program that involves on-the-job training in design, testing and implementation. This post-Master program cooperates with companies that are extremely ambitious in the area of logistics and supply chain performance. 

In its School of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology more than 60 researchers, about halve of them Phd students, work to find innovative solutions for complex logistics problems. They closely cooperate with leading industries in fields like retail, process industry, capital goods industry, and transportation and warehousing.

As a trainee of the Industrial Engineering program you will be trained to use these tools and techniques to design and implement innovative logistics solutions for leading companies in the Industrial Engineering company network, giving your career a kick-start.


The PDEng Program Data Science is a two-year post-master’s program. It qualifies students with an MSc degree in, e.g., industrial engineering, mathematics and computer science to become top-level professionals. Such professionals help industry and business with their decision-making processes based on real, actionable data or become innovative entrepreneurs in the data science ecosystem. The specialization Industrial Engineering focuses on the application of Data Science in the industrial engineering business domain.
