Data science is a new engineering discipline and the main driver for innovation in the coming years. Just as computer science emerged as a new discipline from mathematics when computers became available, data science is a new discipline driven by the torrents of data available today. Data scientists will be the engineers of the future and scientific research and innovations will all be data driven.
Data is collected about anything at any time, at any place. The ultimate goal is not to collect more data but to turn it into real value. Data can answer questions that have never been asked. And data visualizations are helping us see remarkable patterns that were never noticed before.
Data Science is a joint bachelor of Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology. This means you will have lectures in both Eindhoven and Tilburg. You will be taught by experts in this field – both Data Science Centers provide big data experts who will share their knowledge.
In this program, you will learn to analyze the large amounts of data that today's society operates on. You will learn to spot trends for businesses, government agencies or non-profit organizations. You will also focus on societal issues relating to data science including legal, social, ethical, business, and entrepreneurial issues.
