Data Science Bootcamp

During the data science bootcamp, we will visit three cutting edge firms in the data science industry. These companies are looking for motivated master students who can analyse big data and turn these analyses into meaningful insights. As more and more businesses invest heavily in this branch of their organisation, data scientists become ever more important human resources. These companies are looking for you to help them create value for them and their customers and help take these organisations to the next level.

The companies will enlighten you with workshops and challenge you with cases that use big data to come to insightful revelations for their businesses. Even a small diversion into the lab to try a hands-on approach is included. The skills learned in these cases can be used for consulting, marketing and programming purposes and will help you in the future to decide the path you are going to take. During this trip we will visit the city of Amsterdam, Delft and Utrecht to hopefully be able to understand and process big data for business purposes in the end.

The companies participating in this bootcamp are Capgemini Invent, Nielsen and Rijkswaterstaat.
