Did you program 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. In this bachelor's 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. The Harvard Business Review even labeled data scientist as 'The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century'.
I’ve always liked math, and when I am in a computer science class, I try to see the math behind things.
One thing is certain: for me this is the best option!
For the European Horizon 2020 innovation project MaTHiSiS, researchers taught machines how to teach you by learning from watching you learn.
Technology conference TNW catalogues 500 of the Dutch tech world’s most talented people under the age of 26. This year’s list – the T500 – features three alumni and eight current students of the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering (DKE). Among them is Dirk Bongers, DKE master's student.
How can you further improve healthcare with the use of ‘big data’? That question is central to many scientific studies worldwide. Last month, two PhD candidates at Maastricht University defended their theses based on this same key question.
