Technological and societal changes have led to an explosion of digitally available data. Exploiting this data to its fullest extent, in order to improve decision making, increase productivity, and deepen our understanding of scientific questions, is one of today's major challenges.
Data science is an emerging discipline that aims to address this challenge. It is a multi-disciplinary domain, where computer science and mathematics play crucial roles, complemented with human-technology interaction, business models and operations management expertise and skills.
The freedom you have to determine the content of your program enables you to take your studies in any direction: from a heavily theory-based program to a more practice-based program. Furthermore, you could focus more on computer science or mathematics, or create a mixed profile.
As a graduate in Data Science in Engineering programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) you will have developed a scientific perspective combined with a practical approach, that forms an excellent foundation for a successful career.
There are numerous fields in which computer science is applied, which means that you could find yourself in any number of roles. You will find computer scientists in research laboratories, banks, (government) organizations, hospitals, multinationals and internet companies, to name a few.
