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.

With his new project Solid, the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, tries to give users back ownership of their data. The internet hasn’t developed in the way he intended it. Data science progresses at a dizzying pace – are the people in the driver’s seat aware of their responsibility? We asked Gerhard Weiss, Professor of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence and Frank Thuijsman, Professor Strategic Optimization and Data Science.
