WDCC Meet-Up; Exploring Data Science Educational Needs

What Data Science and AI skills, knowledge and mindset are expected from WUR graduates entering the employment market? Can WUR realise those needs within the existing master programmes? What education do we need to offer at bachelor level? And how do we combine knowledge on Data Science and AI with WUR application domains?

Organised by WDCC

In the context of recent WUR developments in data science education, especially the plans for the new data science bachelor, we would like to discuss those questions with you and representatives of three organisations active within WUR domains that are also expanding their data science and AI capacity.

The discussion will be followed by the presentations of:

  • Erwin Folmer from The Dutch Kadaster
  • Jan Willem Kruize from Rijk Zwaan
  • Leo Abrahamse from Unilever.
