Overview

Do you already have a solid academic background in Computer Science and do you want to work toward an even deeper computer scientific understanding and knowledge? Then the master’s in Computer Science is the programme you’re looking for! The two-year programme has a broad scope, but also offers a wide variety of highly specialised elective courses. As such, it actively prepares students for positions in contemporary computer scientific research and development.

Our courses and specialisations are strongly embedded in the ongoing activities of research groups that are each specialised in a particular domain of computer science. The groups publish in international journals and at international conferences, and participate in international research networks and projects. Master students carry out at least half of their studies within one of these groups. By being part of a professional research team, students have the best opportunities to learn and develop scientific skills, and to participate in world-class research. The groups also have experience in developing research trajectories with societal and economic impact. They have implemented an active policy in technology and knowledge transfer, patenting, spin-off creation, industrial collaboration, and innovation.

This master’s programme is jointly organised by two departments, the Department of Computer Science at the Faculty of Sciences and the Department of Electronics at the Department of Engineering. Together, they employ more than 200 researchers, who cover a wide range of research topics.

Career opportunities

After obtaining your master’s degree, you are perfectly prepared for a high-level job in the ICT industry or for research in an academic or industrial context. You will have the expertise to enter a wide range of professional sectors, but no matter where you are employed, you are bound to find yourself at the cutting edge of technological innovation.

You will be equipped with exactly those skills that are paramount to a successful career in high-end industry or academia: a sharp, inquisitive mind dedicated to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and human accomplishment.

You can even become part of one of the highly professional research teams at VUB with a societal and economic impact. Here you will be able to implement an active policy in technology and knowledge transfer, patenting, spin-off creation, industrial networking and innovation.
