Build tomorrow’s technology

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. It’s structured according to seven specialisations, of which you’ll choose one depending on your own area of interest:

  • Big Data Engineering
  • Foundations of Computing and Concurrency
  • Computer Systems and Infrastructure
  • Systems for Large-Scale Applications
  • Software Engineering and Green IT
  • International track: Global Software Engineering European Master
  • International track: Software Engineers for Green Deal

The tracks Computer Systems and Infrastructure and Systems for Large-Scale Applications will be offered starting from 2023-2024. The complete overview of the programme and the year schedule for these tracks will be published in June 2023. Notice that the tracks Parallel Computing Systems and Internet & Web Technology are being discontinued. It's no longer possible to enroll in these tracks.
