Data science is changing what organizations do …What will be the impact on your organization? And on your career? What opportunities does it create, and how to seize them?
Discover is the first level in the Data Science for Professionals program, based on the dual perspectives of the universities of Eindhoven and Tilburg. Discover prepares you for Level 2: Execute (7 months, Certified Data Scientist) and Level 3: Lead (1 year, Certified Lead Data Scientist). It is also possible to do Level 1: Discover as a stand alone module.
What you will do
Detailed Discover curriculum
You have a HBO or WO degree and affinity with analytics and IT, and the ambition to learn basic programming skills. You have the ambition to grow in a more senior professional position, combining technical expertise with boundary-crossing skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, complex problem solving and critical thinking.
The T shape visualizes the idea that a successful career is based on the combination of deep technical expertise (the vertical bar) and wide and broad boundary-crossing skills (the horizontal bar). JADS’s Professional Program trains T-shaped data scientists, who master the technical skills of data engineering and data analytics, and who are also business savvy, understand how business models and strategies work, are able to manage data-science projects delivering results, and in general, know what it takes to get things done in large and complex organizations.
Level 2: Execute continues after Level 1: Discover, offering a core program in data analytics, data engineering and data entrepreneurship. Execute also offers community-specific modules, teaching the impact and applications of data science in a specific work domain. Students in Execute work on an elaborate and complex group project, and are trained and certified as all-round, professional data scientists.
Level 3: Lead continues after Level 2: Execute, offering further specialization in selected topics, and individual development of one’s leadership skills.
Participants of Lead are coached into taking a leading role in the development of their organizations’ data ambitions.
We’ve created a welcoming and warm online teaching environment, which we use as long as the covid situation prevents classroom teaching. Instructors and teaching technologies are adjusted to online teaching. We miss the friendly and inspirational atmosphere of our historic campus, but the teaching effectiveness of online course matches that of classroom teaching!
