Our Information Sciences Master’s is the number one programme of its kind in the Netherlands: it is the frontrunner when it comes to responsible, sustainable and socially aware software and data systems – the new kind of ICT that’s essential for a thriving smart society. Having completed this Master’s programme, you’ll be both an all-round ICT professional and a specialist in this future-proof approach!
The programme has a unique multidisciplinary focus on digital socio-technical systems and sustainability in a broad sense. Teaching is composed of compulsory core courses, a selection of elective courses, and a Master’s project in Information Sciences. For your project, you can choose to take a professional internship with a partner organisation or carry out cutting-edge research on a topic of your choice. Either way, the programme culminates with writing a thesis on your chosen project. Take a look at current internship vacancies on the VU Fresh Heroes platform.
To offer you even more professional expertise, the faculty has close contacts with local, national and international trade and industry. New developments are integrated seamlessly into the programme all the time. Faculty staff work with consultancy firms, the financial services sector, the music industry, electricity suppliers, cultural institutions and many more.
