Overview

Software engineering applies a systematic and quantifiable approach to the development, execution and maintenance of complex software. Green IT is the study and practice of environmentally sustainable computing.

The combination of Software Engineering and Green IT gives you the tools needed for a holistic understanding of large-scale complex software systems. The Computer Science (Joint Degree UvA-VU) - Software Engineering and Green IT programme offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will enable you to manage their evolution, assess their quality and environmental impact, quantify their value and sustainability potential, and organise their development in different local and distributed contexts. 

Software engineering and green IT is a broad and comprehensive field, in which engineering plays an important role in parallel with social, economic and environmental priorities. 

The field continually evolves, influenced by development paradigms like outsourcing, global software development, service orientation, smart and pervasive computing, and energy-aware software engineering.
