Overview

Do you already have an academic Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Engineering or Applied Sciences and do you want to pursue your career in the field of Computer Science and Data Science? Then the Master’s in Applied Computer Sciences is the programme you’re looking for! It is organised to accommodate your scientific background and future-oriented academic interests – developing the necessary Computer Science and Data Science skills by complementing your primary field of expertise. Above all that, we offer a wide variety of highly specialised elective courses.

Data has become a torrent, flowing into every aspect of the international economy, and is an invaluable capital for a plethora of global operations. Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have access to zettabytes or brontobytes of data, and social media platforms connect hundreds of millions of users around the globe. Moreover, millions of networked sensors and actuators are being embedded in the physical world in devices such as mobile phones, smart energy meters and distributed cameras. What is more, petabytes of diverse data, ranging from genomic data to health records and medical imaging are transforming healthcare.

The Master in Applied Computer Science provides a broad education in data science and engineering with focus on generic smart systems design, complemented with elective minors in digital health, smart cities, environmental informatics, and business intelligence. The accumulated knowledge will give rise to an ICT engineer, capable to design systems of systems and apply analytics on the heterogeneous data obtained by such systems.

Career opportunities

A master degree opens doors in many different branches and sectors. The graduates of the Master in Applied Computer Science programme can undertake different positions, including research engineers, software developers, system architects, IoT engineers, data scientists and data engineers, business developers and consultants, in the private sector or in (non-) governmental organisations, or continue their academic career as a PhD researchers, or found companies.
