Overview

Becoming an expert designer and coordinator of information systems projects, with knowledge in data analysis and cyber law, and thus enabling you to take a leading role when tackling any ICT project.

There is hardly a company in the world that doesn’t use ICT in some shape or form and many of them face problems in getting ICT to do what it’s supposed to do. So they turn to ICT technicians for advice. However, more often than not, technical problems are only the tip of the iceberg, and a broader perspective is needed to understand and solve them. Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Information Sciences will teach you to become a digital architect who can look beyond mere technical sides to ICT adoption and assist in designing competitive business solutions.

We’ll teach you the broad theoretical foundations you’ll need to understand the technological aspect of any ICT project that may come your way and we’ll help you look beyond technological concerns when tackling ICT-related problems in practice. Radboud University is well known in the field of information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems.

There is a large demand for well-trained information experts who can help implement sound, secure, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate, as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/toxicology

Why study Information Sciences at Radboud University?

- Data analysis, privacy and cyber law are the essential components of modern ICT. Radboud University is unique in offering this combination within the field of Information Sciences.
- This programme offers a good mix: forming a solid technical, organisational and legal foundation, getting hands-on experience and developing the insights needed to take a leading role in successful change programmes with active engagement from both technical savvy people and those unfamiliar with the field.
- The field of Information Sciences has the highest chance of finding employment and graduates are offered some of the highest salary for starter position in the Netherlands.
- The second half of your programme offers the possibility of an internship, which in this field is paid and can contribute to financing your Master’s study. We have close contacts with the private sector which can help you to find your own internship position.
- Electives enable you in fine-tuning the focus of this specialisation to meet your own academic and professional interests.
- You will be taught by top researchers and ICT experts of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS), which was ranked first in the latest national research assessment.
- Some graduates even start their own businesses, something that the Mercator Incubator right here in Nijmegen could help you with.

Technical and management students

This programme is suited for both students with a technological background with management ambitions, as those with a management background and a strong affinity with technology wanting to specialise in ICT. As the programme is a technological programme we do expect the management students to have taken a minor in Information Sciences during their Bachelor’s study, or they will need to take a half-year pre-Master’s programme before being admitted

Our approach to this field

At Radboud University, we believe that a good information specialist is more than an expert in information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems. They form the bridge between the people involved. You’ll therefore need to learn to work together with different stakeholders within a project, for example, the super technical programmer, the demanding client and, in some cases, the computer illiterate user. You’ll need to be able represent all their interests and find a solution that’s satisfactory to all. By the end of the programme you’ll be a well-trained digital architect with the necessary managerial skills.

Radboud University's information specialists also work closely with colleagues from other disciplines, such as law, medicine, brain research, and artificial intelligence. Because information systems have a wide application, this Master’s programme shows you how to look beyond the borders of your own discipline. And the annual study trips in the elective ICT in a Different Culture – to countries such as India, Brazil, and South Africa – will also enable you to extend your own boundaries.

Career prospects

There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can apply good, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or to public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals.

Students with this Master’s could think of positions as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists. And more companies are adding the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO) to their board of directors. This Master’s programme is definitely a good stepping stone to reaching this kind of position in your future career.

- Your own company
Some students develop their own ideas and innovations while taking part in this Master’s. They see what’s on offer, understand what’s lacking and realise where the possibilities lie. In Nijmegen there are plenty of opportunities for those wanting to start their own business. For example, the Mercator Incubator could help those with a good business plan with advice or even by offering affordable accommodation and other facilities for the first year or two of setting up a company.

There are opportunities to investigate areas of specialist interest.

The course is split between university and professional teaching practice, with approximately 12 weeks and occasional days and 24 weeks split between two placements. The weeks at University are designed in such a way that you experience lead lectures both with your own subject area and with students from different subject areas in order to have an insight about how a particular issue relates to different specialist subjects. These may be given by University Staff or by guest lecturers with specialist expertise.

There are also plenty of opportunities where your experience can be enhanced such as involvement with local conferences and workshop events. This year students attended the Technocamps conference at The Liberty Stadium, Swansea, where they had the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from local IT and computing enterprises such as Raspberry Pi and Welsh government ministers. They also had the opportunity to observe first hand some of the innovative programming applications such as ‘Blockly’ and ‘SCRATCH’ being used first hand in teaching environments.

This year it is also hoped that the Secondary PGCE Computing and ICT will have the opportunity to join their Primary colleagues in their own conference on site in Swansea.

Within the newly designed course if you are achieving your QTS early it is envisaged that should you wish to take the opportunity you can arrange a fortnight placement at an establishment of your choice within the Secondary or 14-19 sector. This will enable you to observe, experience a specialist area that you may wish to pursue. It could include special needs schools, independent schools and training establishments. This opportunity is likely to increase your experience and employability.

A solid, theoretical understanding of computer technology with plenty of attention for the wide range of ICT applications.

The enormous and rapidly growing power of ICT is the main driving force shaping our modern society. This goes beyond the technical and economical aspects. ICT is also essential in research as all sciences benefit from the raw power of software in processing huge quantities of data. But how do we manage and control the complexity of modern software? How can we make the most of the opportunities? And, not to be forgotten, how can we secure the ICT infrastructures we so heavily rely on? The Master’s programme in Computing Science covers all these aspects.

We offer specialisations in each terrain: security, software, data and the mathematics at the base of it all. These are not, however, isolated disciplines. We also look at the interesting interplay between them. For example, by taking privacy into account when dealing with big data. And by doing a thorough analysis of newly designed software to prevent security breaches later. Thanks to a large number of optional courses, you can decide where you want your focus to be.

The job opportunities in computer science are excellent: many of our students get offered jobs before they’ve even graduated and almost all have positions within six months after graduating. Many of our graduates find jobs as systems builders, ICT specialists or ICT managers and a few continue as researchers.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/computingscience

Specialisations

- Cyber Security
You’ll learn to assess the security of existing ICT solutions, and how to develop more secure solutions for the future. This specialisation is offered in collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology, meaning you get taught by many of the best cyber security experts in the country.

- Data Science
You’ll learn how to turn real-world data sets into tools and useful insights, with the help of software and algorithms. Radboud University and the iCIS research institute are leading in research on legal and privacy aspects of data science and on the societal and administrative impact of data science.

- Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science
You’ll come to understand the fundamental mathematical concepts of computation and information in order to stretch the boundaries of computer technology. We’re the only specialisation in the country – and one of the few in the world – to focus on the theoretical and abstract playing field linking mathematics and computer science.

- Software Science
You’ll learn how to design high-level software that guarantees safety while controlling its complexity. At Radboud University, we are specialised in model based development. In other words, writing and testing code before they are unleashed in the real world or built into an expensive prototype.

- Societal Master's specialisations
You can either follow one of the above-mentioned research Master's specialisations as a whole (2 years), or you can combine the first year of the research specialisation with an additional year of one of the societal Master’s specialisations, namely:
- Science in Society
- Science, Management and Innovation

Why study Computing Science at Radboud University?

- All of our specialisations are closely related to the research carried out within the Institute for Computing and Information Science (iCIS).
- Our approach is pragmatic as well as theoretical. As an academic, we don’t just expect you to understand and make use of the appropriate tools, but also to program and develop your own.
- There are plenty of high profile companies in the vicinity such as Philips and ASML, where you could do an internship or the research for your Master’s project.
- Exceptional students who choose the Data Science specialisation have the opportunity to do a double degree in Computing Science together with the specialisation in Web and Language Interaction (Artificial Intelligence). This will take three instead of two years.

Career prospects

There is a serious shortage of well-trained information specialists. Often students are offered a job before they have actually finished their study. About 20% of our graduates choose to go on to do a PhD but most find jobs as systems builders, ICT specialists or ICT managers in the private sector or within government.

Our research in this field

The Institute for Computing and Information Science (iCIS) is the research institute that is connected to Radboud University. Within this institute there are three research sections:
- Model Based System Development
- Digital Security
- Intelligent Systems

Within each research section there are different departments/groups that have their own research. On the websites of the research sections you will find more information about their research, publications, the departments/groups and contact information.
