Key facts

Due to the unmet demand for experts on these topics, you’ll become a sought-after specialist who can operate in almost any sector. Your Master’s degree in Computer Science will give you all the skills you need to get started in the international job market. With IU, you can study 100% online, on campus, or switch between both with their new flexible studies option.

Career Path

As a Computer Science expert, you will be one of the most sought-after specialists in business, industry, the public sector and government organisations. After you graduate, you will work as:

  • Computer and Information Research Scientist: As a Computer and Information Research Scientist (Computer Scientist for short) you will analyse complex problems in a variety of areas, including business, science, medicine, in order to develop computer-aided solutions. Computer Scientists are theorists, designers and inventors all in one, and help influence the future of companies via innovative technologies and computer systems.
  • Database Administrator: As a Database Administrator, you will be responsible for the planning, design and development of database applications. Ensuring accessibility and maintaining data security will also be one of your tasks. You will regularly test databases and associated programs to identify any errors to be corrected, alterations to be made, and security measures to be implemented.
  • Software/Web Developer: As a Software Developer, you will design, implement, and modify computer programs. This can involve both application software ie. software intended for the general public and commercial purposes, and system software ie. software that ensures the smooth and efficient functioning of computer systems. As a Web Developer, you will create and maintain websites. You will oversee the technical structure of the website (back-end) and/or the visual layout and content (front-end). Web Developers often act as "webmasters" and are responsible for ensuring that websites function properly.
