Everybody agrees: the job of Data Scientist is set to become the ‘hottest’ job around in the near future. In fact, data scientists will become the most sought-after professionals as the amount of data that is produced - and the value of this data - continues to grow exponentially. Specialist capabilities, as well as data specialists with
a more general business-oriented outlook will be in great demand.
Bachelor and Master programs
As of September 2016, joint Bachelor and Master Data Science programs will be offered at three campuses: the result of a unique knowledge sharing partnership between the University of Technology Eindhoven and Tilburg University . The Master’s Data Science and Entrepreneurship is given at the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and co-partnered by the city as well as the Brabant region.
The programs are focused on producing analytics professionals. The curriculum is a well-balanced and blended business-technology program covering applied mathematics, computer science, design and business. It will teach students the technical and management skills necessary to support or run organizations in innovative ways.
The collaboration between the universities of Eindhoven and Tilburg in the field of data science offers many unique opportunities. The combination of Engineering Science and Technology (TU/e) and Social and Behavioral Sciences (Tilburg University) enhances knowledge and opens up new possibilities for expert research.
Data Science Center Eindhoven – post-graduate research
The Data Science Center Eindhoven is TU/e’s response to the growing volume and importance of data and reflects the university’s mission to educate the engineers of the future. 90% of today’s data has been created in the last two years alone. And the world's data volume will grow 50 times larger within the coming ten years. As human and organizational activities become even more connected with the digital universe, data science will become an integral part of engineering and scientific research.
The Data Science Center was established in 2013 by four departments: Mathematics & Computer Science, Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, Industrial Design and Electrical Engineering.
The Data Science Center conducts seven research programs:
These programs are closely linked with the university’s thematic research areas: Energy, Health and Smart Mobility. The center collaborates with a wide range of organizations -including Philips – on PhD projects and research.
