We do cool stuff that matters, with data

Data Science is becoming increasingly essential to finding answers to the challenges of our era.

JADS is a unique cooperation between the Province of North Brabant, the Municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). We offer various data science programs. From bachelor and master programs, to EngD (formerly PDEng) education and professional education. Besides, we help organizations shape their data driven future.

At JADS, researchers and students work closely with the business community. In addition to education and research, JADS also offers space for innovative, data-driven entrepreneurship and public-private partnerships.

Vision and mission

Impact. Growth. Progress. To embed Data Science into society and continue scientific development. This we achieve by challenging each other, being curious and sharing knowledge. We do this together with students, teachers, scientists and entrepreneurs – from a wide range of sectors and disciplines.

Data science has never been sexier. We’ve known that for years. And we also want to entice others to make an impact with data. This is only possible by working together and connecting people, sectors and industries.

We aim to make an impact with data science, to make a contribution to society and provide answers to complex issues. By pioneering, we lead the way. And that produces surprising results. This progress makes us proud and fuels our passion for science. That’s why we can truly say: We do cool stuff that matters. That is how we make a real difference with data.
