Master Computer Science

Visit the Master Open Day on 30 March

This master's in Computer Science focuses on both the development of ICT systems in their societal context and the technological aspects and applications of embedded systems.

ICT is omnipresent in modern society. The latest hardware and software developments are crucial in domains such as social media, security, health, energy, ICT systems, finance and telecom. That's why this Master's focuses on the development of ICT systems in their societal context and also on technological aspects and applications of embedded systems.

Development processes of sophisticated software systems are also crucial. You will be trained to combine a scientific mindset with specialist technical knowledge. You will also learn to design, analyse, validate and implement state-of-the-art ICT systems in their operational context.
