M. Sc - Computing Science

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Computer systems now penetrate virtually all facets of society and personal life in what is commonly referred to as ambient computing. But ensuring the safety, reliability and quality of these systems is a growing problem. This Master's Programme in Computing Science trains you to become a specialist who is able to find solutions to these problems. You will receive a thorough theoretical training and learn to think creatively. In this way you will be able to contribute to developing future techniques.

This programme is closely related to the research carried out within the Institute for Computing and Information Science (ICIS). You will be trained by top researchers and ICT experts. Research at ICIS centres on three themes: Model-based System Development, Digital Security and Intelligent Systems. Our research in these areas is leading the field internationally. ICIS researchers recently broke the Mifare Classic RFID chip that is used by millions, for instance, in the London Oyster card and the Dutch OV chip card. You choose a research group that fits your own interests and then become involved in its ongoing research.

Radboud’s information science specialists work closely with colleagues in other disciplines and at other universities. This means we are able to offer students a great deal of choice. Cooperation with the Donders Institute for Brain Cognition and Behaviour makes it possible, for example, for them to specialise in artificial intelligence and neural networks. The Master’s track Mathematical Foundations of Computing Science involves close cooperation with mathematicians. Within the Kerkhoffs Institute – a cooperative venture with information scientists from the Technical Universities of Eindhoven and Enschede – students can follow the Master’s track Computer Security.
