The growing amounts of data will significantly change the jobs of (future) engineers. This is reflected in the training of students; engineers of the future will be confronted with a multitude of data science questions. Therefore, the Eindhoven University of Technology aims to further strengthen data-science related education at all levels (Bachelor, Master, and PhD). We do this in together with our JADS partner: Tilburg University. As of the study year 2016 a number of dedicated Data Science programs have started.
This Data Science major is a joint bachelor program with Tilburg University where you will learn to spot trends for businesses, government agencies or non-profit organizations. Besides the technical side you will also learn to deal with social issues which relate to Data Science.
At master level TU/e also offers several Data Science program options:
This program is organized in cooperation with Tilburg University and is a truly interdisciplinary business-technology-analytics program. It is ideal for students eager to bring data science into effective use in business.
This is a joint master program of Mathematics and Computer Science which can be studied as a special track in either the Computer Science and Engineering Master or the Industrial and Applied Mathematics Master.
PDEng programs are two-year salaried programs in the field of technological design. A major part of the Data Science program is related to real-life, cross-functional projects with partners in the data science ecosystem. The academy is located in the city of 's Hertogenbosch. Candidates have a solid background in Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, and strong affinity with Data Science.
