Programme profile

Did you programme your first app while you were still in kindergarten? Are you married to your laptop? And are you always looking for logical patterns? Then perhaps you have the DNA of a knowledge engineer.

Knowledge is central to modern society. Smart chips help companies keep track of goods and manage supplies and stocks. New, high-tech communication devices, such as mobile phones, navigation instruments and digital cameras, are greatly enhanced by intelligent software and medical and biological engineering help medical doctors arrive quickly at accurate diagnoses.

As a Data Science and Artificial Intelligence student, you'll study methods to approach new challenges in these important areas. You’ll generate new knowledge by gathering and ordering valuable information using mathematics and intelligent computer techniques. The knowledge you'll acquire can in turn be used to take decisions or solve problems efficiently.

In this programme, you'll study logic, intelligent search, and machine learning. You'll collect and organise relevant information using mathematics and smart computer techniques. You also use models and computers for data analysis. The ultimate objective is to develop user-friendly software and intelligent systems for - among others - healthcare, IT, robotics and commercial gaming. Upon graduation, you can look forward to a promising career, as data scientists and knowledge engineers are in high demand.

Programme content

In contrast to more traditional programmes in computer science and mathematics, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence takes a targeted, practical and applied approach. You'll learn to build bridges between theory and practice and you’ll be able to apply solutions to data problems in a broad range of settings, such as logistics, robotics and medicine. You’ll use techniques from:

- computer science, with an emphasis on software, programming, algorithms and logic

- applied mathematics, including the practical application of major mathematical concepts, methods and techniques

- artificial intelligence, including ways to reason using available knowledge and an introduction to machine learning and intelligent search
