Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering

The Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering broadly covers Knowledge Engineering in teaching and research. Teaching takes place in the Bachelor's programme Data Science and Knowledge Engineering and the two Master's programmes Artificial Intelligence and Data Science for Decision Making. Research at DKE is focused on Robotics, Agents and Interaction, Networks and Strategic Optimization and Biomathematics and Bioinformatics.

Education programmes currently offered by the DKE are:

  • Data Science and Knowledge Engineering (Bachelor's programme)
  • Artificial Intelligence (Master's programme)
  • Data Science for Decision Making (Master's programme)
  • I’ve always liked math, and when I am in a computer science class, I try to see the math behind things.
