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.
The electives provide opportunity to deepen your knowledge of core concepts in Computational Science. Electives are selected to obtain a specialty in Computational Science or the different application domains, such as Finance & Economics, Biology & Bioinformatics, Numerical Mathematics and Earth Sciences.
