Starting next week, students can apply for the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS). The data science program is a collaboration between, among others, TU/e and Tilburg University. JADS will start 1 September.
The parties involved have decided to use the name of the painter Jeroen (Jheronimus) Bosch. Bosch’ way of using existing motives was resourceful and he came up with a wide range of new compositions. Jan Mengelers, chairman of the board at TU/e: “We find his innovative abilities in the data science initiative. The collaboration between a technical university in Eindhoven and a humanities and societal university in Tilburg make the approach unique.”
The master program is housed in the Mariënburg monastery, in Den Bosch. The bachelor programs are in Tilburg and Eindhoven. According to Koen Becking, chairman of the board at Tilburg University, the initiative is of vital importance for business, authorities and the region. Becking: “They need scientifically trained data scientists, our universities are aware of their role in society.” Stakeholder research by Brainport shows that Southern Brabant needs at least three hundred new data scientists every year.
World wide, 2,5 terabyte of data is produced every day. 90 percent of this data is not yet structured. By analyzing this data, data science can contribute to the improvement of mobility, waste problems, health care, safety and the tuning of market supply and demand. Is also improves the predictions of economic developments.
For the academic year ’16/’17, there is room for eighty bachelor students and forty master students. The programs are part of a collaboration between province Noord-Brabant, the city of Den Bosch, Tilburg University and TU Eindhoven.
