 Shape our connected future

Computer Science studies the technology that has become ubiquitous in our global, connected society. Globally distributed information processing services have taken center stage, with the Internet connecting a wide variety of information processing devices, ranging from mobile phones to data centres operated by leading global companies. The technical side of Computer Science deals with computer operations, like system software, computer networks, and programming environments. The theoretical foundations cover the limits of what can be computed, computational efficiency, correctness, and intricacies of concurrent execution.

 

Software engineering studies the construction and maintenance of large and often mission-critical software systems that need to be maintained by large teams of people. Because of its prominent role in everyday life, non-functional aspects of information technology are gaining importance in Computer Science, most notably the energy efficiency of data centres, and the security of computer systems.

 

The Computer Science programme is a joint degree between VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam (UvA). It’s structured according to six specialisations, of which you’ll choose one depending on your own area of interest:

  • Big Data Engineering
  • Computer Systems Security
  • Foundations of Computing and Concurrency
  • Internet and Web Technology
  • Parallel Computing Systems
  • Software Engineering and Green IT
Build technology for the information society

The Master’s in Computer Science covers this fascinating and hyper-relevant discipline from multiple angles. The technical side of Computer Science deals with computer operations, like system software, computer networks and programming environments. The theoretical foundations cover the limits of what can be computed, computational efficiency, correctness, and the intricacies of concurrent execution.

Having completed the Master’s in Computer Science, you’ll understand and speak the language of computers.

Depending on which track you follow, you’ll have expert knowledge in big data engineering, computer systems security, computing and concurrency, Internet and web technologies, parallel computing systems, or software engineering and green IT. You’ll also be able to translate that knowledge creatively, into something that other project team members will understand.
