The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) is responsible for three Bachelor Level programs and four Master Level programs.

Within the unique Bachelor College system of Eindhoven University, the Department also teaches two successful university-wide courses to 2000+ students, one of which is a data science course. The Department is therefore seeking to expand its teaching capacity and is looking for a highly motivated teacher in the area of data science.
