Delft University of Technology

Master Postgraduate Delft

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary Software technology has a major impact on the economies of industrialised countries.
Course description Information-processing systems provide the backbone for almost all administrative and logistic operations within commercial production, business and public administration. Without software, high-tech systems are useless, whether large (e.g., a self-driving car or a robot for computer-assisted surgery) or small (e.g., a smartphone or an ordinary electronic card payment system). Moreover, software permeates all aspects of our life in society, ranging from Internet-based services like e-mail, online games, social networks and cloud computing, to large-scale scientific computing systems, traffic control systems and wireless sensor systems. All these systems need to have effective algorithms for their correct operation, good performance, high reliability and a well-thought-out architecture to make them easy to build and to maintain. Such essential features very well describe the specific focus of the Software Technology track.
Study subjects The Software Technology track offers students freedom in choosing subjects and specialisations. Eventually, after this broad orientation, you will join one of the research groups for your specialization and thesis.
Course objectives To educate computer scientists which have such professional knowledge, capabilities and attitudes as to be able to take part, alone or in cooperation with other specialists, in solving problems which arise in society, science, or in private or public institutions.
