Founded by prof. Andrew S. Tanenbaum, the Master's programme in Parallel and Distributed Computer Systems (PDCS) addresses the most ambitious traditional and emerging topics in experimental computer science.
Targeted at highly talented students and focusing on excellence, the programme is very selective. After graduating, many students pursue careers at leading companies like Google or Microsoft, PhD programmes in top research schools, or R&D labs in the industry. If you want to reach the top of the experimental computer science field and have the brains to back it up, PDCS is for you.
The programme has been awarded Top Master in the Keuzegids of C.H.O.I. (higher education information centre) for many years. This prestigious award is based on ratings given by experts and students about the quality of the programme.
The Master’s programme Parallel and Distributed Computer Systems will follow a new curriculum with a stronger focus on Computer Security from September 2021 onwards. More information on the renewed programme will be available soon.
