New start of KE@work

New start of KE@work

A new academic year, a fresh start of the KE@work track from Maastricht University. We welcome 4 (!) talented students from Maastricht University.

As part of the faculty’s KE@Work program from Maastricht University, these talents – in the second and third years of the bachelor’s programme – will spend half of their time in the classroom and half at Mediaan. Their job? Solving academic challenges and complex business problems.

Good luck guys and we are very happy to have you as part of our team!

My name is Floor, and I am 18 years old. I was born in Weert but live in Maastricht now for about one year.

Currently, I am studying my bachelor in Data Science and Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University, in my second year.

In my spare time, I love doing sports, especially hockey and running, but also sailing, climbing, skiing, and more once in a while.

I am interested in how knowledge can be extracted from seemingly invaluable, raw data, and formatted in a way everyone can understand the newfound insights, to help make substantiated decisions and innovations.

Mediaan is offering me a 2-year internship on data exploration and visualization in an environment with young talents.

I am excited to learn more about this topic at Mediaan!

Hello! My name is Marwan Mansour, I’m 19 years old, originally from Alexandria, Egypt.

Currently, I’m studying Data Science and Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University and working in here in Mediaan for my honours programme, which I’m very excited about.

I choose Mediaan for its innovative community and very supportive work environment and hope I could learn from everyone here.

During my 2 years at Mediaan, I will be working on machine learning projects and hope I can learn a lot from this opportunity.

In my free time, I like playing football and boxing, in addition to some extracurricular activities including activities committee work and being a student ambassador for the university.

I’m looking forward to meeting everyone around!

I am currently living in Maastricht and study at the Department of Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University.

The reason I chose Mediaan is that they offer the possibility to gain hands-on experience with the latest technologies in the data science field. I’ll be working with the Data and Intelligence team, learning how to apply AI techniques to real-life situations.

Outside of university and work, I enjoy running, reading, watching series and orienteering – which is a sport which involves finding exact locations using a map and compass to navigate to the location.

Hristo Minkov

Hoi! My name is Hristo Minkov, I’m 20, I come from Sofia, Bulgaria and I currently live in Maastricht.

However, my parents and my sister live in Madrid, Spain. So, I also spend a lot of time in the sunny Pyrenean peninsula. I’m now part of the genius Data Science team of Mediaan. I also won Mediaan’s Masterclass last year and went to a Microsoft Conference in Florida, USA – beyond amazing experience!

Currently, I’m doing my Data Science and Knowledge Engineering bachelor at Maastricht University. I graduated from a Software University back in Bulgaria, so I also have Software Engineering skills that allow me to acquire new topics with ease.

As part of the Squash association of Maastricht University, I practise with the team 3-4 times a week. In my free time, I go swimming, running or read A LOT.

Looking for a place that tackles real business problems and has a great international community, Mediaan seemed the best. I know that working there would not only satisfy my current curiosity to learn about all Data Science topics, but it will also make me dig deeper into this field!
