track Software Technology Track

Software Technology is about designing software for technical systems.

Software Technology is about designing software for technical systems. Examples range from software for small real-time embedded systems like heartbeat monitoring in watches, to large complex control systems as those being used in the New Waterway Storm Surge Barrier, the final element of the Delta Project. Software Technology engineers design communication protocols by which computers communicate, adapt complex algorithms to work on parallel or distributed systems, or develop logistic algorithms for practical planning problems. But the field of Software Technology is certainly not limited to these examples: the field that investigates how complex software systems should be specified, designed, implemented, verified, tested, maintained, and restructured, reengineered, which belongs to the domain of software engineering, as well as the design and construction of fault tolerant and reliable embedded software.

specialisatie 4TU Cyber Security

Cyber security is a multidisciplinary field with computer science at its core.

For example, it involves cryptography, formal methods, secure software engineering, and machine learning. It also touches on a broad range of supporting disciplines, such as law, economics, criminology, management, and psychology.

specialisatie Bioinformatics

The main focus of the Bioinformatics specialisation is on Data Analysis and Modeling, which represents the unique expertise of the different research groups of TU Delft and Leiden University.

This expertise is used to address issues like data capturing, data warehousing, data analysis and data mining that have become major challenges in the field of Bioinformatics due to the tremendous complexity and abundance of quantitative data in biology and medicine. On the other hand, bioinformatics heavily contributes to the identification of new fundamental computer science principles and the development of new informatics tools. This track is part of the Master's in Computer Science of the Delft University of Technology and the Master's degree programme Computer Science of the Leiden University.

specialisatie Information Architecture

The IA programme combines aspects from computer science and from management, and thus addresses the problem of concurrently designing and engineering enterprises and their supporting ICT applications.

It concentrates on the alignment between organizational needs and the engineering opportunities and solutions offered by novel ICT solutions. An information architect is a professional who bridges the gap between business and ICT.

Research in Bioinformatics is essential to realize the necessary breakthroughs within medicine & biotechnology

During my bachelor's degree in Life Science and Technology at the Delft University of Technology I was mainly interested in the subjects centered on processing biological data using computational methods.

Currently the amount of data that can be produced in the lab is huge, but processing this data is challenging and requires much more than just a spreadsheet. Modeling and analyzing these huge datasets generates new biological knowledge (such as new protein structures, functions and relationships)...
Realizing this, my choice for the master's program in Bioinformatics was made quickly. And, working with people with different backgrounds is challenging and fun! Currently I'm working with datasets of sequenced human genomes: trying to detect defects that may result in a disease. This is not only interesting, but also very important for society!

The Computer Science Master's programme offers many challenges, often in the form of interesting and engaging projects.

I am a Computer Science student at TU Delft. After finishing secondary school I chose to study computer science (Technische Informatica) at TU Delft. I enjoyed using the computer and playing games, but had no idea how a computer was able to do these things and I wanted to find that out.

After completing my Bachelor I chose to stay in Delft to do my master. It allowed me to continue my social activities at the student rowing club, but also because the university's programme offered a diverse and engaging set of courses...
For my graduation project, I worked on visualising gene expression in the human brain. This was a real challenge, because not only did it concern a huge dataset but I also had almost no knowledge of genomics or the brain in general. In order to make a good visualisation I had to gain a deep understanding of the data and had to figure out how specialists use this data to gain new insights.

The Computer Science Master's programme offers many challenges, often in the form of interesting and engaging projects. Getting your hands dirty on real assignments is the best way to master computer science and this programme gives you many opportunities to do so!"

I develop novel algorithms to analyse such data, by making use of machine learning methodologies, or graph-based algorithms.

I am professor in Bioinformatics and I am fascinated by the interplay between computer science and life sciences. With the ability to decipher genomes, the role of computations is revolutionizing life science. This science of the 21th century will play a crucial role in solving the great challenges that humanity is facing. Already, important breakthroughs have been realized in understanding diseases, improvements in food production, or production of complex chemicals...
To do so, my lab has an excellent computing infrastructure with ultra-fast connections to the (inter)national high-performance computing environment.

Our bioinformatics students work in inter-disciplinary teams. For example, a recent student closely collaborated with clinical geneticists. He developed new computational tools to detect trisonomies (three copies of a chromosome instead of two) in unborn children by testing maternal blood. The results are now being implemented as part of a novel and much safer screening technology for pregnant women.

Because of their strong technical background, and their ability to cooperate in complex settings, our students are very popular in the job market. The shortage of bioinformaticians makes them most welcome in research and industrial positions both in and outside the Netherlands. Come and join us in our endeavour of this new thrilling science!
