Why study Data Science in Eindhoven & Tilburg?
Studying Data Science at TU/e means that you are studying at one of Europe's very best universities. We have already performed very well in independent rankings for years. That does not mean we are full of ourselves, however. The atmosphere at our university and within the department of Mathematics and Computer Science is welcoming, friendly and open.
If you have any questions or you require support, then our lecturers and other staff members are here to help you at any time. That support is available as soon as you register with the Bachelor College, at which time you and your coach decide together which major suits you best and how you can make the most effective choices for your electives. And if during the first year it turns out that a different major is more suitable, you can look together with your coach in order to determine how you can change your major during the current academic year.
