Program description

Study a Masters in Computational Science in Amsterdam

Would you like to confront a tornado in virtual reality and predict its path of destruction? Or understand the behavior of financial markets? What if you could simulate the outcome of a surgical procedure before it is used on a patient? Or predict how a crowd would behave in the event of a disaster? Computational Science seeks to explain the complex world we live in using technological simulations.

Computational Science Masters

The first year is dedicated to core Computational Science courses covering computing & algorithms, modeling & simulation, massive-data processing and multidisciplinary collaboration. The second year is dedicated to elective courses and the Master’s project.
