Data Science for Food and Health
Data are everywhere: from sensors and trackers, to apps measuring the behaviour of people. The master’s Data Science for Food and Health offers new opportunities in the domains of health, nutrition, lifestyle and consumer behaviour. We can use data science to better measure and understand what and how people eat. What food choices do they make?
Unique about this master’s:
– Interdisciplinary programme which integrates data science knowledge and skills with a sound understanding of nutrition, consumer behaviour and lifestyles, and their effects on human health.
– Learn to translate raw data from diverse sources into intelligible and actionable knowledge, using smart data processing and analytical methods.
– Explicit attention for interdisciplinary skills needed to perform a bridging role between various stakeholders.
– Personal leadership: students need to design and plan their individual learning pathway during their studies and will learn how to give direction to their personal and professional development.
