Student Profile(s)

Yasmin Fathy (MSc Computer Science)

I am from Egypt and just graduated from the two-year Master in Computer Science, profile Artificial Intelligence (AI). I would definitely recommend this challenging programme to all graduate students who want to reach a high level of research. The diversity of courses also allowed me to grasp the essence of research in different disciplines. I had a great time in Brussels, learned so much and made friends from all over the world.

Faiza Tasnia (MSc Computer Science)

It’s a challenging programme but I appreciate all the measures taken by VUB in ensuring the wide range of resources available. I’m hoping that graduating with this degree will open doors to opportunities I’ve been looking for. I would totally recommend students from my country to choose VUB as their higher education institution.

Tom Jaspers

Thanks to the diversity of courses taught in the Computer Science programme I was able to find and refine my interests in this very broad field. The Artificial Intelligence specialisation offered a challenging and interesting path into a subject that is embedded in nearly every new technological advancement.The style of teaching pushed us to keep exploring beyond the course material, and allowed me to gain a deep familiarity with the latest research. There was an important emphasis on the foundations of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, something that helps me in my career when keeping up with the latest academic work.
