Leitmotif

We believe in a cascade of data, information, insights, knowledge and back to data. We work on the different aspects to discover valuable insights in data (masses). 

The Bachelor courses are concerned with Data Science, focusing on applications. Here, we concern aspects like Data Modeling and SQL, modern Data Management systems, and Data Quality (part I) as well as Database Transactions and Concurrency, ACID, Data Security and Privacy Data Visualization, Data Mining, and Data Warehousing (part II, part III).

The Master courses concern more scientific aspects in the information area: Information Retrieval (Bopolean Model, Dictionaries, Natural Language Processing, Vector Space Model, Ranking, Evaluation, Text Classification, PageRank, etc), Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (Preprocessing, Machine Learning algorithms, Interpretation and Evaluation), Machine Learning (Deeper insights in Machine Learning algorithmics).

The learning outcome for each course is an understanding of the content. I attach importance to the 'why' rather than to the 'how', encouraging students to look for alternatives, to be curious and critical, and to understand problems from different perspectives.
