Silver education awards for KE@Work: Best University-Employer Partnership and discipline award Engineering & IT

In 2018, over 1150 innovative projects from 39 countries competed for the Reimagine Education awards. DKE honours track KE@Work took home two silver awards: one in the category ‘Best University-Employer Partnership’ and the discipline award for ‘Engineering & IT’.

Reimagine Education Awards 2018

KE@Work selects the best students of the bachelor’s programme in Data Science and Knowledge Engineering. They are matched with companies, where they work on AI challenges alongside their studies for two years. An academic mentor safeguards the quality of the project. Meanwhile, students obtain work experience and business skills not normally taught in universities. For the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering, KE@Work provides a valuable source of feedback to ensure that the content of their curriculum matches the demands of the labour market. The partnerships with local businesses – roughly 40 to date, including companies such as APG, Mediaan, VodafoneZiggo and Q-Park – also stimulate contract research within the organization.

KE@Work started in 2014 as a way of stimulating talented students and establishing partnerships with local businesses. Professor Frank Thuijsman, initiator of the project: “We wanted to offer students a unique and challenging experience, which helps them participate in the labour market while simultaneously keeping them engaged with their studies.”
