From sensor networks to space station environments and from multi-core chips to computational grids; the requirements are all very different but the knowledge and skills required to make these systems work are remarkably similar. Each is an asynchronous, concurrent system requiring coordination and synchronisation, but operating on very different timescales and with different computational requirements. This programme addresses both industrial and society-wide problems related to infrastructures, with an emphasis on concurrency engineering, which is a non-trivial discipline. The focus on concurrency and foundation in extensive research expertise in each of these domains is what makes the University of Amsterdam's (UvA) research-based programme truly unique.
Students wishing to be admitted to tracks leading to a Master's degree in Grid Computing must hold one of the following: * a Bachelor's degree in Informatics from a Dutch university * a Bachelor's degree in Technical Informatics from a Dutch university * graduates of study programmes that are broadly based on the ACM/IEEE computing curricula (see Appendix A of ACM/IEEE 2001) and who demonstrate sufficient quality, motivation and experience to successfully complete the Master's programme during the assessment procedure.
