Shape our connected future

Technology has become ubiquitous in our global, connected society. Globally distributed information processing services have taken centre stage, with the internet connecting a variety of information processing devices, ranging from embedded sensors to data centres operated by world-leading companies.

The Computer Science programme is a joint degree between VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam (UvA). It’s structured according to six specialisations, of which you’ll choose one depending on your own area of interest:

  • Big Data Engineering
  • Computer Systems Security
  • Foundations of Computing and Concurrency
  • Internet and Web Technology
  • Parallel Computing Systems
  • Software Engineering and Green IT

As a Computer Science Master’s student in Amsterdam, you’ll benefit from the expertise, networks and research projects at both VU Amsterdam and the UvA, as well as affiliated research institutes. Courses are taught at locations of both universities, and you’ll receive a joint degree certificate on graduation. Not only is the programme unique in that it offers a joint degree – it also allows you to specialise in one of six distinct tracks.
