KE@Work: First 10 students in academic work/study track to graduate

On Wednesday, 13 July 2016 the first 10 bachelor's students to complete the work/study track KnowledgeEngineering @ Work graduated. This was a memorable day not only for them, but also for the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University. Frank Thuijsman, professor, leader and initiator of the project explains: ‘It's great to see that it's possible to work and learn at an academic level. The first pioneers with whom we started this track two years ago are now graduating. They not only have their bachelor's diploma, but come away with two years of work experience as well. This is unique in the Netherlands because we are the first (and only) regular bachelor's programme at academic level that is structured as a two-year work/study track.’
