Until September 2020 Data Science and Artificial Intelligence was called Data Science and Knowledge Engineering
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.
This programme is taught by the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering.
