Create a data driven business design

Design and develop data driven decision-making processes based on real, actionable data for your organization. Work together with our PDeng data science trainees on the development of new models specifically for your organization.

Dedicated data science project (10-12 months)

In the second year, the PDEng program is concluded with a ‘final project’, in which each PDEng trainee has to solve a concrete, complex case or problem that is presented by an organization. The focus is “create a business design.” Trainees help the organization with their decision making processes, based on real time data and insight. Within a period of maximum 1 year, a concrete project result, such as a working data-driven model or prototype, is achieved. The PDEng trainee combines high-level scientific knowledge with the design for a solution for your organization.

The PDEng students are employed by JADS, but work on location as part of your organization and will be financed through financial contribution from your company or organization. The average period of a PDEng final project is 10-12 months. During that period, JADS will of course still provide guidance to the student, in addition to direct contact between the student and your organization.

Short projects: case study, data scan, interview workshop

The PDEng program also regularly calls for case studies and data challenges in the educational program. It is possible for your organization to participate. The aim of short projects is to identify the right questions that match the ambitions of an organization and can be solved with data. The focus here is to gain the correct insight into the problem and what data is needed to solve a problem.

"I’m using data to support business ​decisions”

“I’m currently working on a graduation project where I use data science and geo-experiments to test the effectiveness of online marketing. What would be the effect of continuing a certain marketing campaign in one region and stopping it in another? There’s a certain logic puzzle aspect in data science that I very much enjoy, especially on the interface between technology and business development.“
