Overview

The study programme

Computational Science seeks to explain the complex world we live in using technological simulations. By collecting data and creating computer models, computational scientists can make predictions on varying problems such as how to influence the flow of traffic, how an epidemic will spread or the probability of individuals in society becoming addicted to drugs. The curriculum relies heavily on algorithmic-driven procedures, but also involves lots of mathematics and logic.

After graduation

Graduates of the Computational Science programme of the University of Amsterdam  are highly valued because of their skills and knowledge in this new field of science. They are ready to start a career in any research environment where computation is the core business.
