Master in Computational science
Would you like to confront a tornado in virtual reality and predict its intentions? Or understand the behaviour of financial markets? What if you could simulate the outcome of a surgical procedure before it is put into practice? Or predict how a crowd would move in the event of a disaster?
Computational science is a discipline that has established itself as the third pillar of modern science (alongside theoretical and experimental science) and involves the modelling, simulation and analysis of world phenomena through computation. This has opened up new windows onto the physical and social sciences, earth sciences and life sciences at many levels of scale.
Studying Computational Science in Amsterdam
The University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam offer the programme jointly. You will study at the Science Park Amsterdam and the VU Amsterdam Campus. Together with several leading scientific institutes at the Science Park - such as the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands (CWI) - we have teamed up to create this programme. This gives you unique opportunities for conducting your graduation research.
