IDS participates widely in the educational activities of UM. This takes the form of both classroom roles such as lectures and tutorials, as well as research- based learning where students undertake independent research activities within the lab and also executive education for professionals @ BISS.

In addition, we are actively involved in the planning of the new Bsc programs Digital Society, Global Studies, Digital Technology and Care,  Brain Science. and the Msc programs Medical Imaging.

Recently, we also started to develop a Master’s program in Responsible Data Science and a Minor Basic Introduction to Data Science.

We offer to tailor (executive) courses for any interested parties. Contact us for more information at
