Computing Science

Programma-opties

  • Intelligent Systems and Visual Computing (track)

    The ISVC specialisation focuses on research areas such as image processing and analysis, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning and brain-like computing.

    But also scientific visualization, information visualization, software visualization, illustrative computer graphics, and innovative interfaces using large displays, with fundamental and practical problems from the life sciences (functional brain imaging, bioinformatics), health care and astronomy. You will participate in the grand challenge of giving computers the abilities to perceive (e.g. see), analyse, learn and enhance human creativity.

  • Data Science and Systems Complexity (starting in the year 2016–2017) (track)

    In the DSSC specialisation there is a strong interaction of computer science with engineering and practical applications sciences, industry and government.

    Many of the greatest mathematical and computational challenges faced in almost any science today stem from the combination of large amounts of data and the complexity of the systems under study. You will learn advanced methods of machine learning, pattern recognition, information visualization, and distributed information systems. You will work on developing new methods that help solve these challenges.

  • HTSM Honours Master (honoursprogramma)

    This Master's degree programme gives access to the additional, highly selective, High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) Honours Master.

    The HTSM Honours Master is organized in cooperation with Philips and other major industry partners.

  • Science Business and Policy (honoursprogramma)

    The SBP specialisation focuses on the business and policy side of science.

    During this track, you will be offered all the right tools to function as a professional in business or policy organisations, including a six-month internship as a scientific advisor.

  • Software Engineering and Distributed Systems (track)

    The SEDS specialisation focuses on research in the areas of architectural knowledge, architecture reasoning process, technical debt, architecting critical embedded systems and object-oriented design.

    As well as all aspects of distributed information systems with particular emphasis on service-oriented computing, pervasive middleware and energy distribution infrastructures. You will contribute to architecting industrial software-intensive systems that meet quality standards by carrying out joint research projects with industrial partners and other research institutes, thus combining academic know-how with industrial practice.

Exchange: All our science and engineering programmes offer study abroad possibilities at a number of partner institutions. Our partners include top-100 universities in Europe (for example in Germany, UK, and Sweden) and in the USA, China, South-East Asia, and South America. Our exchange programmes have a typical duration of one semester and count toward your final degree.

Internship: This programme offers you the opportunity to carry out a research project of a variable number of months at a company in the Netherlands or abroad, as part of your thesis. Our choice of industry partners ranges from large multinationals (such as Shell, Philips, Unilever) to dynamic small and medium enterprises in the Groningen area.

Double degree: We offer a double degree in Computing Science, with a specialisation in Software Engineering. The University of Groningen and the University Politehnica of Bucharest (UPB) jointly offer this programme. Please note that this programme is only available to students who are enrolled at the UPB in the Master's programme in Software Engineering. Interested students should contact Prof. Goga (n.goga@rug.nl) before February, 1.

    I started as a student, now I'm a project leader

    'During my first year I got a job with Manter, a machinery automation company. I was involved in testing new applications. This helped me get a better grasp of the subject matter and gave me plenty of practical experience and self-assurance, resulting in a job as a project leader as soon as I completed my studies.

    The projects I work on involve new software systems. Some days I’ll be training end-users, others I’ll design new features, while other days will be all meetings or we’ll spend the whole day testing and fixing bugs.

    If I had to choose today, I would do Computing Science again. The demand for software developers continues to grow. I’d also choose to study in Groningen again. My friends studied in other cities, but we all agree: Groningen is the number 1 student city!’
