About

Computer technology has given us a wealth of new opportunities, but unfortunately it has also created serious risks. The Computer Science programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focuses on both aspects, with Networks and Security as two major topics in the program.

Overview

Computer Science is all about our interaction with information. That information can range from railway timetables to personal health care data or exciting new virtual games. 

The computer scientist looking further

We are moving towards a world in which everything and everyone is connected. This will affect all of us. For this very reason, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Computer Scientists will be joining researchers from practically a wide range of academic disciplines as they examine the theme of the Connected World. 

We invite you to enter this world: as a Computer Science student at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will be uniquely qualified to contribute to this theme as an expert in the field with technical as well as multidisciplinary skills. 

Visit a taster day

Are you up for joining VU Amsterdam’s international talent network? Are you tenacious and do you enjoy learning from others? Do you have an affinity with computers, programming and math? Are you creative, inquisitive and ambitious? Do you wish to make things simpler, and are you the problem solver this world needs? In that case we would be happy to meet you during one of our taster days.  

Career prospects

  • Upon graduation you’ll receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. You’ll be able to use your knowledge to develop state-of-the-art computer programs, evaluate potential network security weaknesses, or design a secure network. 
  • The graduates have landed jobs as software engineers with Google, Nokia and the City of Amsterdam. Others have become Licensed Ethical Hackers at XS4ALL, consultants with Accenture or are now CEOs of their own companies (e.g. Voiceworks). Computer Science is invaluable for almost any modern industry or company, so you will have many options when it comes to finding the right job.
