Report after report indicates that we are simply not training enough data scientists to meet world demand. Within Maastricht University there are already numerous programmes and courses in the field of data science. The goal is to promote and strenghten these programmes to attract more students interested in a career in data science and provide them with high quality education.
Primary objectives in education:
- Strengthen existing data science programs and courses at Maastricht University
- Develop new interfaculty data science programs and courses
