Software plays a role in almost every aspect of our daily lives and in every organisation anywhere in the world. It can often be a crucial key to their success. Well-structured software that is attuned to an organisation's needs and future plans can be cost effective, improve efficiency, offer better services and be innovative. Many companies, in every branch out there, are therefore looking for highly skilled software specialists. Graduates of the Master's specialisation in Software Science will have no trouble finding a job.

Producing software is not merely a technological enterprise but a deeply scientific and creative one as well. Modern cars drive on 20 million lines of code. How do we develop all this software and control its complexity? How do we ensure correctness of software on which the lives in a speeding car literally depend on? This specialisation goes far beyond basic code writing. It's about analysing and testing code in order to improve it as well as simplify it.

Waarom aan de Radboud Universiteit?

Although not the only focus, our programme puts a lot of emphasis on embedded software and functional programming. We also teach a unique range of software analysis techniques and application down to practical/commercial use in industry.
  • This specialisation builds on the strong international reputation of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) in areas such as model based and virtual product development, advanced programming, and domain specific languages. We also closely collaborate with the Embedded Systems Institute.
  • 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.
  • For your Master's research we have a large number of companies like Philips, ASML and NXP offering projects. There are always more projects than students.
  • Thanks to free electives students can branch out to other Computing Science domains at Radboud University such as security, machine learning or more in-depth mathematical foundations of computer science.
  • The job opportunities are excellent: some of our students get offered jobs before they've even graduated and almost all of our graduates have positions within six months after graduating.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

The job perspective for our graduates is excellent. Industry desperately needs software science specialists at an academic level, and thus our graduates have no difficulty in find an interesting and challenging job. Several of our graduates decide to go for a PhD and stay at a university, but most of our students go for a career in industry. They then typically either find a job at a larger company as consultant or programmer, or they start up their own software company.
Examples of companies where our graduates end up include the big Dutch high-tech companies such as Océ, ASML, Vanderlande and Philips, ICT service providers such as Topicus and Info Support and companies started by Radboud graduates, like AIA and GX.
