Computer Science

Computer Science is about information and the ways we can process it. New as it may be, Computer Science is a wide field. The computer science programs at VU University Amsterdam cover a large part of this field: computer systems, software engineering, formal methods, artificial intelligence, business informatics, business mathematics, bioinformatics.

Above this, the world of computer science is becoming a connected world more and more. We are all living in a world where everything is connected. Networks play an important part in our daily lives. Computer networks, but also online social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN) and communities (on-line collaboration, on-line games). Some of the research of the department of Computer Science focus on this subject.
