Technology Studies

The Master of Science provides an opportunity for graduates to obtain advanced research skills and knowledge in a professional learning environment. A Master of Science (MS) degree can provide you with the foundation of knowledge and key competencies you'll need throughout your career

Technology is broadly defined as a collection of processes which are used to create goods or services. Technology therefore refers to the knowledge of such processes, or the processes themselves, which are often embedded into machines or devices.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. English speaking students will have no problems finding suitable courses. For international students applying to universities in the Netherlands, several scholarships are available.

Understanding data about human behaviour is an important and valuable skill in today's society. Companies, public institutions and governmental organizations — they all use the continuous stream of big data to describe and predict human behaviour.

Behavioural Data Science

The police use data to predict the risk of burglary by area and week of the year, insurance companies adjust their prices based on client data, and schools adjust educational programmes based on what is known about student progress.

Leveraging the full potential of these massive amounts of behavioural data towards these goals greatly benefits from a thorough understanding of data science techniques and human behaviour modelling. The master's track Behavioural Data Science aims to combine these two. The programme assumes knowledge of psychology, research methodology, and applied statistics at an undergraduate level, and continues with training on advanced (big) data techniques, academic skills, as well as practical and professional skills. ...
