General guide to the Bachelor's degree

Below we describe the overall structure of the bachelor programme in Computing Science.

The curriculum consists of three main components:

1. Core curriculum (129 EC) which covers the basic terms of the programme, consisting of

  • Core basics: programming languages, algorithms, information modeling, systems architecture, mathematical structures;
  • Combined areas: distribution, interaction with the environment;
  • Methods and techniques: development, research, issues related to a professional context, mathematical techniques.

2. Specialisation tracks (24 EC) which provide further orientation in the field of

  • Cyber Security (24 EC) - advanced topics in the field of security, building on related topics in the core curriculum;
  • Software and Data Science (24 EC): topics in the field of software technology  and intelligent systems

3. Electives (27 EC) consisting of a minor programme (15 EC) and free electives   (12 EC)

The minor can be filled in with standard packages from the university offer, or can be compiled individually subject to approval by the Examination Board. Some minor programmes have been specifically compiled for students of Computing Science to form a transition programme to the master programmes Information Sciences or Artificial Intelligence. The full package of minor programmes offered by the Science faculty can be found in the minor prospectus. Free electives are always subject to approval by the examination board, and courses should have no overlap with the remainder of your programme.

The above modules are combined to form the following programmes:
