Computing Science

Within the Master's degree programma of Computing Science you can use excellent computing facilities and conduct research in the following areas:

Distributed Systems, which are becoming the standard way to build information systems, in particular Web Services, Service-Oriented Architectures, eBusiness, and mobile computing;

Intelligent Systems, with projects on machine learning, computational intelligence, computational artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, computer vision, with applications in medicine, health care, finance, law enforcement, robotics, animal breeding, genetics, bioinformatics;

Computational Science and Visualization, in particular 3-D medical imaging, visualising large, multidimensional astronomical data sets, general data visualisation, visualising bioinformatics data (genomics and proteomics);

Software Engineering, dealing with the process of creating programs from the requirement analysis all the way to its management, in particular software patterns, explicitly handing variability and managing architectural knowledge;

Data Science and Systems Complexity, with complex systems generating big data, and big data helping to identify, control, and analyse complex systems and apply data science methods in practical problems of companies and governments;

Information Systems which are the backbone of any enterprise with special focus on cutting-edge concepts, architectures and technologies for EAI, business process management (BPM) and workflows, SOA and REST architectural styles, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Blockchain platforms, Information Assurance and Security and in the fields of data-driven healthcare, logistics and SCM, advanced biometrics, manufacturing, eScience and scientific computing.

    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!’
