Program description

There is a huge demand for efficient and reliable software systems. The complexity of many of these systems is an important problem, especially when multiple communicating systems operate parallel.

The emphasis in the Master's degree program in Computer Science and Engineering is placed on the design of high-quality software. During program you will learn to combine a scientific attitude with an engineer’s approach. Defining reliable protocols for the behavior of complex software systems requires a knowledge of algorithms, performance, hardware, and design and documentation methods. You will also need an understanding of the variability and maintainability of these protocols. All these aspects can be found in the compulsory part of the program.

The combination of a scientific attitude with the practical approach of an engineer forms an excellent basis for an interesting career. The numerous fields in which computer science is applied ensure a wide range of career opportunities. You can find our computer science graduates banks, as well as in insurance companies, governmental organizations, multinationals and internet companies. Most computer scientists start with positions as members of software design teams, but many of them rapidly grow into positions as team leaders and, in time, to management functions. Starting up your own company is also among the options.
