Program description

This application-oriented Computer Science master's program will teach you to apply algorithms, programming, and machine learning to real-world business challenges. "Computational thinking" is a program component. GISMA teaches students how to employ abstraction and decomposition to solve challenging tasks, develop complex systems, and analyze massive data sets.

When paired with project and innovation management and technology consulting, this provides the framework for demanding expert and managerial responsibilities in IT and adjacent disciplines, up to and including self-employment.

Full-time and part-time study is available. Full-time study takes two years, part-time longer. Ask our study advisors if your past learning outcomes or relevant work experience qualify you for a one- or one-and-a-half-year program.

Our MEng Computer Science degree programme is a dynamic and specialised programme that covers all the key areas of this in-demand specialism, from business technology consulting to advanced programming and databases. You will graduate with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience to thrive in your career in the field.
