About the course Data Science for Reliability Engineers.

The focus on data science applications in reliability and maintenance engineering is unique. For a successful project, expertise in both data science and domain expertise are required, as well as tech-savvy and programming skills.

The vision underlying the course is that reliability engineers bring domain knowledge to the table, and by training them in the possibilities and way of working of data science they can successfully collaborate with experts in machine learning and data engineering.

Course: Data Science for Reliability Engineers.


Given the availability of cheap sensors and data storage, and modern data infrastructures such as the Internet of Things, more and more information about a product’s lifetime, degradation and performance in the field are available. Also, new types of data, such as online product reviews and weather data, are now easily accessible.

RFs - outcome

These massive streams of data are a rich source of information for understanding and improving the reliability of products and for optimizing a maintenance strategy. They complement reliability testing, and may sometimes even be a cheaper alternative. They also create challenges for reliability engineers, in handling larger and less structured data sources, and in combining multiple data sources, possibly of various types, in a meaningful way.
