How can we develop secure and robust software? How can we teach computers to see? How can we make our software easily adaptable to new tasks? How do we improve learning by computers?
If you find these questions fascinating, you should choose the Master's degree programme in Computing Science in Groningen. This programme deals with both the theoretical and the practical aspects of computing.
You will develop and increase your in-depth knowledge within the areas of Data Science & Systems Complexity, Intelligent Systems & Visual Computing or Software Engineering & Distributed Systems. All our courses offer insightful lectures covering both theory and practice. Apart from acquiring core computing science skills, mathematics and research methodology are also focused upon.
In student colloquia, research and presentation skills are developed. For those aiming to go into business rather than academia, project management and related topics are also offered. All skills acquired are actively used in research projects, either within the university or during business and industrial internships.
Because computing science is pivotal in many areas of research, students can easily participate in one of many research collaborations with other fields, such as bioinformatics, medicine and astronomy. In addition, contacts with many businesses facilitate internships in a variety of fields, matching the interests of most students.
