Our lives would be very different without the software that often does its work invisibly. Imagine what could happen if a software error left bridges open, prevented you from sharing information with your friends via Facebook, or caused the electricity to go out. But why do automation projects fail so often? Why are large software systems so complicated to design? Why does it take so much time and money to maintain existing software? Why are some apps an instant success while others fail? And what is needed for new web services to emerge?
Designing software systems
In the Computer Science and Engineering program, you will learn the basic principles and methods to develop software systems and web services. You will learn how to take the user perspective into account. You will be able to scientifically reason about the correctness and efficiency of programs, using formal mathematical methods. You will know how to further develop knowledge and skills that underpins the internet. In addition to expanding your knowledge and skills, you will also learn how to apply these to solve specific problems.

Ask a student
Do you have a question about the program or student life? Ask our students.
How do you decide what to study? In the podcast series 'From student to engineer' our students answer these and lots of other questions.
After completing this program, you will receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering.
This degree ensures that graduates satisfy the profile as specified in the learning outcomes of the program.
Looking for an extra challenge? Or can't you choose between the bachelor's programs Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and Engineering? Then you can choose to follow a combined program at the TU/e. The following combination is possible:
- Double bachelor program Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
In a combined program, the most important subjects of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and Engineering are retained. There is a considerable overlap between the programs. You can therefore obtain 2 diplomas with extra credits (about 25% more studyload).
If you choose a combined bachelor you have to apply for both programs in Studielink!

The study association represent the interests of the students at the department of Mathematics & Computer Science. It tries to let the students view their field of study from a different angle. It achieves this by means of excursions, lectures and symposia and by organizing a study trip. On the other hand, the association also organises sports tournaments, parties, a weekly drink, weekends and other forms of leisure activities to stimulate the relation between the members themselves.
