How has your MSE degree influenced your professional career?
«It gave me a lot of options to choose from since a degree in Data Science is very sought after. It also gave me confidence in the application process that I have the necessary skillset.»
What advice do you have for new MSE students?
«Try to inform yourself about the modules and what they entail to plan the best possible learning during your masters. Some courses overlap a lot which will save you some work but also costs you some of the learning.»
In which areas were you able to develop the most through your MSE studies?
«Since I didn’t know computerscience before starting, the learning curve in that area was very steep.
I especially developed my coding skills but also the understanding in deep learning and machine learning were huge steps in my development during these 18 months.»
What were your main reasons for choosing the MSE program?
«I wanted to have a lot of practical work for my second master and the MSE program offers 2 third of the degree as practical work, supported by modules where you learn the necessary skills which for me was the perfect combination and the reason why I chose this program.»
