    Programme Description

    Computing science has a large impact on our everyday lives and the boundaries of its application are shifting at an increasing rate. Computing science nowadays provides, for example, for the configuration of robust timetables that are able to adapt to emergency situations; it offers decision-support systems to help veterinary practitioners in the early detection of outbreaks of infectious disease; it provides for analysing large-scale data sets of genome expressions to support identification of the genes that are involved in disease and mutation. Computing science, more in general, provides a range of techniques for solving many complex problems in science and industry.

    The two-year Master´s programme in Applied Computing Science focuses on the deployment of the latest techniques in the design of modern computer-based systems and offers a variety of courses and individual projects. The programme draws upon expertise in decision-support systems, network modelling and graphs, planning and scheduling, data mining, and evolutionary computation.

    Graduates of this programme are fully prepared for research positions at universities and science labs, both in computer science and in interdisciplinary research, and for careers in industry.
