Computing Science at Radboud University

The Master's programme in Computing Science focuses on the design, analysis and interaction of software, machine learning and big data, cyber security, and the logic and mathematics behind computation. It explores questions surrounding the management and control of the complexity of modern software.


The programme focuses on a mix between theory and practice. We expect students not just to understand and use tools, but also to develop your own. We also take a multidisciplinary approach, which means you can take ideas from other areas, and develop your own study track that matches the things you are passionate about.


In addition to high marks, Radboud also offers a wide range of specialisations and research opportunities and works together with the Institute for Computing and Information Service (ICIS). ICIS researchers recently broke the Mifare Classic RFID chip that is used by millions, including in the London Oyster card and the Dutch OV chip card.


Radboud's information science specialists also work closely with colleagues in other disciplines and at other universities. Cooperation with the Donders Institute for Brain Cognition and Behaviour makes it possible, for example, to specialise in artificial intelligence and neural networks. The Master’s track Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science involves close cooperation with mathematicians at the Kerkhoffs Institute – a cooperative venture with information scientists from the Technical Universities of Eindhoven and Enschede.


In addition to institutes associated with Radboud, there are plenty of high profile companies at your doorstep, such as Philips, ASML and NXP, where you can do an internship or conduct research.
