Master of Science (MSc)

Software systems play an often unseen yet highly important role in our society. Consider, for example, the systems of banks or insurance companies, or the software in a television set, internet search engines or software that controls the electricity network. We cannot manage without them. 

In the Master of Computer Science and Engineering program, you will learn to design quality software. You will also combine a scientific perspective with the approach of an engineer. You will systematically produce inventories of requirements and incorporate them into your design. You will also be able to make qualitative and quantitative judgments regarding the extent to which those requirements have been met.  

Master Computer Science and Engineering

This program equips you with knowledge of algorithms, performance, hardware, and design and documentation methods. You will be able to apply this to create reliable protocols for the behavior of complex software systems. As a master-level graduate, you will be able to play a leading role in the development of your specialist field, whether in scientific research, in industry, in commercial businesses or in (government) organizations. 

A wide choice of electives gives you the freedom to determine the content of your program, enabling you to take your studies in any direction.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master: Big Data Management and Analytics

This joint Master in Big Data Management and Analytics (BDMA) is designed to provide understanding, knowledge, and skills in the broad scope of fields underlying business intelligence and big data. A collaboration between leading universities in Belgium, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and France, the program prepares students to answer the professional challenges of our data-driven society through a strong connection with industry.


The independent judgment by the NVAO strengthens higher education institutions in their quality culture. On the basis of the judgments of NVAO higher education programmes are recognized and students receive a legally recognized degree. In the Netherlands, NVAO assesses the internal quality assurance pursued by universities and the quality of the programmes they provide.
