specialisaties

specialisatie

This specialisation offers students the opportunity to combine previous research training with programmes in different aspects of science communication, such as journalism, new media and museology.

The track consists of two parts: the first master's year is given in English and focuses Computer Science. In the second master's year the student follows the Dutch-language communication element.
Students of this master's specialisation have an excellent opportunity to broaden their studies outside their own specialist field, and during the internship are able to try out the interesting opportunities offered by a career as scientific communicator or scientific journalist. The experiences and insights gained will be of benefit to those who intend to continue in an academic environment, for example as a PhD candidate in their own specialist field. The ability to communicate about science is an essential skill which all scientists should have mastered!

specialisatie Smart Computing for Science and Society

Smart Computing for Science and Society is a new specialisation of the master's in Computer Science.

It will be offered as of September 2014 and is a combination of the current Core Computer Technologies en Computer Science Theory and Advanced Technologies specialisations.

The technical areas covered within our master include the following:

  • Foundations and Formal Methods
  • Intelligent Algorithms
  • Software Development and Engineering
  • Multimedia Systems
  • Embedded Systems
  • Project & Innovation Management

Testimonial Prof. Kok

“The computer is becoming increasingly invisible but consequently more powerful.”

“Computer science is a relatively new field where there is still a lot to be achieved. I am fascinated by computers: in writing software you really are creating something. That's a powerful feeling. In addition, as a computer scientist, the world is your oyster and you have access to an extensive range of different working environments.

Leiden offers students four unique research clusters: Algorithms, Computer Systems, Imagery & Media and Foundations of Software Technology...
We distinguish ourselves from other programmes as a result of our fundamental approach and because we not only focus on technology, but also on the application of computer science in such environments as the insurance industry, supermarkets and hospitals.

There are many opportunities inherent in computer science – the pace of technological developments based on computer science is very rapid – but some things are not possible and never will be possible. You can't write a programme, for example, that monitors whether other programmes ever stop. Computer science has a number of these fundamental limitations and I find it interesting that my field addresses these issues.

I believe that people are not sufficiently aware how much computer science has penetrated their everyday lives. And this trend will continue. I have high expectations of grid computing: the computer is becoming increasingly invisible but consequently more powerful. Computer science will enter your home, like electricity, and organise everything for you.”
