The Computer Science MSc program from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) key facts:

The programme prepares you for an active role in computer science research and development, in academia as well as in the ICT industry.  

Our master programme builds on your existing academic foundations in computer science (such as a bachelor in computer science, or equivalent) and provides you with a deeper knowledge and understanding of computer science in general, as well as of the state of the art in your favourite of four specialisations:  

The Artificial Intelligence specialisation is all about building intelligent software artefacts. In addition to data mining and big data, you will be exposed to current research in the areas of adaptive systems, multi-agent systems, the origins of language and bioinformatics. 

The Data Management and Analytics specialisation covers scalable and distributed data management systems, information retrieval and data mining algorithms, as well as information visualisation and human-data interaction techniques. You will study algorithms, techniques, architectures and methods for the management, processing and interaction with both structured and unstructured data.

The programme is designed to build thorough technological and scientific knowledge of various multimedia domains, such as digital television, telephony and videophony, computer animation, computer games, and the internet. 

The Software Languages and Software Engineering specialisation covers courses ranging from theoretical foundations (e.g., type theory in Haskell, formal proofs in Agda), programming language paradigms (e.g., multicore and distributed programming in Clojure and Scala) and implementation techniques (e.g., compilers and virtual machines), to advanced software engineering topics (e.g., security, quality assurance, meta programming).
