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.
