Computers affect almost every aspect of our daily lives and the enormous and still rapidly growing power of ICT is the main driving force shaping our modern society: not only technologically and economically, but also scientifically, as all sciences benefit from the raw power of software in processing huge quantities of data. This also raises important questions. How can we make the most of the opportunities? How can we manage and control the complexity of modern software? How can we effectively use the ever increasing amounts of data?
Our dependance on ICT also has a downside: cyber security incidents frequently make news headlines and can have a enormous impact: how can we provide the security we needed in the ICT infrastructures we rely on?
Whichever questions of these questions interests you, computing science is a fascinating field with excellent career opportunities.
Specialisations within the Master's in Computing Science
We offer students four specialisations to choose from:
These specialisations are closely related to the research carried out within the Institute for Computing and Information Science (ICIS) of the Radboud University, which was rated the top computing science insitute in the Netherlands by an international committee evaluating the quality of computing science research across all Dutch universities.
