Description:

Information interaction

Computers spelen een steeds grotere rol in ons dagelijks leven. Bij de bachelor Computer Science (ofwel Informatica) hier aan de VU word je opgeleid tot een expert in de onderliggende technologie. Deze opleiding heeft een internationaal karakter, waarbij Engels de voertaal is.

 

Computer Science is all about our interaction with information. That information can range from railway timetables to personal health care data or exciting new virtual games. Computer technology has given us a wealth of new opportunities, but unfortunately it has also created serious risks. The Bachelor’s in Computer Science at VU Amsterdam focuses on both aspects, with Networks and Security as two major topics in the program.

 

The openness and transparency that we value in the Netherlands are reflected in our educational system. You will receive a pro-active and challenging education, and our lecturers’ doors are always open for any questions you might have. Our lecturers combine teaching with top-level research. They also maintain solid relations with various businesses in the field, and projects you will work on during your program are often organized in cooperation with such companies.

 

Can't wait? Check out this lecture on Computer Systems by top-researcher Herbert Bos, which is part of the actual curriculum.

 

The Computer Scientist looking further

We are moving towards a world in which everything and everyone is connected. This will affect all of us. For this very reason, VU Computer Scientists will be joining researchers from practically a wide range of academic disciplines as they examine the theme of the Connected World. We invite you to enter this world: as a Computer Science student at VU Amsterdam, you will be uniquely qualified to contribute to this theme as an expert in the field with technical as well as multidisciplinary skills.
