Curriculum start year 2022/2023 and before


The bachelor Data Science is a 3-year Bachelor program, with a fixed part and a large elective part. The fixed part consists of major courses and the Basic Courses which are part of every major and are given university-wide. The Elective part will be filled with USE and Free Elective courses.

Since Data Science is a joint program, courses will also be given at Tilburg University. Each course marked with JOINT will be split between lectures in Eindhoven and Tilburg. The aim is to prevent traveling between two universities in one day, but please note that once you start taking electives this will be harder to plan.

Below you can see a schematic overview of the bachelor program. 

Data Science program during academic year in 2022-2023


The future engineer will become more important as a link between technology and society. For this purpose the USE packages have been introduced. Ten packages of 15 credits each are offered, each organized around a theme (e.g. Entrepreneurship or Robotics). The preferred USE package for Data Science contains the three Data Challenge courses.

MyFuture Activities

As of the academic year 2020-2021, MyFuture Activities are a compulsory part within all TU/e bachelor’s programs. All activities approved by the Education Board (whose members are the Dean of the Bachelor College, Dean of the Graduate School and the Director of ESA) are seen as a MyFuture Activity and can be recognized by the MyFuture logo. You must participate in the equivalent of seven MyFuture Activities to complete your bachelor’s program. The assigned value to the activities varies from 1 to 3. There are no course credits associated with the MyFuture Activities.
