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 MSc programs Health and Digital Transformations and Responsible Data Science.

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

Summer School: Introduction to Data Science

The 'Introduction to Data Science’ Summer School is an introductory, yet practical course in data science for both students and professionals. This course will cover the basic methods and practices of a data science project: Aside from gaining basic programming skills in Python, you will also learn how to select, clean, analyse, visualise and interpret data. You will learn pre-processing techniques, data classification algorithms, and validation methods. All is done in an interactive problem-based learning environment where students learn to apply learned concepts to different datasets. The course will be taught by Associate Professor Dr. Visara Urovi.

Duration: 2 weeks (12 -23 June)
Tuition Fee: € 899 (€ 720 for UM Students and WiDS participants)
ECTS: 3.0
