Education

We offer students education that prepares them for a leading role in science and engineering of information systems. This includes sharing our passion for topics from user modeling, Web science, information retrieval, data management, data science, data engineering, natural language processing, Web engineering, user interaction, human computing, and human-AI interaction. Below you will find a list of all of our teaching activities.

TU Delft students can find all information on education in Brightspace.

Master specialisation

Master students who like to do a specialisation in WIS are encouraged to select Web Science & Engineering, Information Retrieval, and Seminar Web Information Systems (the last one possibly in their second year). In any case, for help in composing a program, students can always contact Geert-Jan Houben for advice and help.

Special programme within the MSc Computer Science

WIS also coordinates (in collaboration with TPM) the special programme Information Architecture that MSc Computer Science students can choose to follow. Contact Christoph Lofi for more info on IA.

Online Courses

We offer an online class on scalable stream processing, called Taming Massive Data Streams. This online class is part of an online professional certificate Big Data to Insights: Scalable Processing of Large Data Repositories & Streams.
