Lunch meeting Data Science minor

Monday 13 May 2024, 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm
Discover the interfaculty Data Science minor

Data plays a role in almost every scientific discipline, business and industry, and social organisations. Medical scientists sequence human genomes, astronomers generate terabytes of data per hour, marketeers analyse the online behaviour of visitors of websites and online services, linguists discover patterns in languages. And of course, businesses like Google and Amazon are shifting user preference data to fulfill desires we do not even know we have. 

In this interfaculty minor, that is open to all bachelor students of Radboud University, you will get acquainted with data and data structures and develop insights into how data is turned into knowledge and solutions, with the help of computers.

Lunch meeting

A special lunch lecture will be organised on Monday 13 May from 12.30 - 13.15 pm where you will learn more about the minor. Stefan Frank (coordinator of the minor)  and a student who attended the minor will tell you more about Data Science. Ask questions about the minor and find out whether Data Science really interests you.  The lecture will be in English and take place in the reception room of the Berchmanianum. Lunch is included. 

Stefan Frank (coordinator of the minor): 'Learn how to turn data into knowledge!'

Student about the Data Science minor: 'This minor offers an opportunity to learn how to work with big amounts of data that is very valuable across various fields!'

About the minor

You will follow at least 15 ECs worth of Data Science courses that are not already part of your compulsory bachelor curriculum. These ECs consist of at least one obligatory course and multiple electives. All minor students follow the 6 EC course Data Science Project (NWI-IBC045, taught in Semester 2) and construct their own minor by choosing electives. The courses you can choose depend on your current curriculum. Some courses are more suitable if you have a technical background, for example, because you study at the Faculty of Science (FNWI) or your bachelor is in Artificial Intelligence. Otherwise, you can follow a less technical track.
