Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS)

The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) is a unique concept in the Netherlands. At three different locations (TU Eindhoven, Tilburg University and Mariënburg Campius) Data Science can be studied, researched and applied through bachelor and graduate programs, PDEng education, Data Science Centers and incorporated into existing ecosystems.

About

History

The original Mariënburg convent dates back to 1423 and was established by Franciscan nuns. Over 200 years the Franciscan nuns lived at the convent until Frederik Hendrik, Prince of Orange and stadtholder, succesfully captured the city of 's-Hertogenbosch during the Eighty Years' War. 

Education

JADS offers a number of data science programs at undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate level. Parallel in these program is the aim to develop so-called ‘T-Shaped’ data scientists and researchers, with strong skills and experience in one discipline and an essential understanding of many others. 

Research

The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science offers Data science research in three locations: Tilburg, Eindhoven and 's-Hertogenbosch. Our Data Science Research Centers enhance the relevance of academic research to business and society. 

​The Data Science Center Eindhoven (DSC/e) is TU/e’s response to the growing volume and importance of data. 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone and the world's data will grow by 50 times in the next 10 years. Moreover, human and organizational activities are intertwined with the digital universe. Therefore, data science is growing in importance and becoming an integral part of different types of engineering and scientific research. 

Career

The career opportunities for data scientists are sheer endless. According to a Harvard study, the profession of Data Scientist is the ‘sexiest job’ of the 21st century. Meaning the skills that you will have as a data scientist are in exceptionally high demand. 

Not only in the Netherlands, but also worldwide the number of Data Scientist vacancies is growing exponentially.  

According to research by Dialogic, the number of vacancies in the Netherlands doubled between 2014 and 2015. McKinsey estimates that in 2018 there will be a shortage in professionals with deep analytical skills of between 140,000 to 190,000 in the US alone.
