Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
With over 100 (assistant, associate and full) professors, almost 200 PhD and
PDEng students, about 1100 Bachelor students and 600 Master students, the
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) is one of the largest
departments of the TU/e. By performing top-level fundamental and applied
research, and maintaining strong ties with industry, M&CS aims to contribute
to science and to innovation in and beyond the region. This is reflected in a
rich portfolio of projects and grants that our professors attract (including
ERC and national level personal grants, H2020, NWO, and industry co-funded
projects). M&CS is offering high-quality educational programs including
multiple Bachelor and Master programs, all fully taught in English, including
a full Data Science curriculum and a new Data Science and AI MSc program.
The department's relationship with the high-tech industry in the Brainport
region means that interested staff and students can contribute directly to the
development of technological innovations with real-world relevance. The
department has produced a number of successful spin-offs and participates in
many national and international research consortia.
Education Innovation at TU/e
