Programme B3 (Cohort 2020, third year)

The third year offered in 2022-2023 is the final year of the curriculum that started in 2020. This curriculum has three specialisation tracks of 12 EC each:

  • Software Science (12 EC)
  • Data Science (12 EC)
  • Cyber Security (12 EC)

and students choose two out of three, comprising 24 ec in total. According to the programme, you have taken one full specialisation in the second year, as well as one course of the second specialisation. In the third year, you complete the remaining course(s) of your second specialisation in the spring semester. Below you find a schematic overview of the programme. Courses that are included in both tracks are listed first; after that, track specific courses are listed.

The full curriculum of cohort 2020 (first, second and third year) including specialisation tracks, semester planning and EC per course can be found in this PDF (pdf, 233 kB). For a more detailed view of the relations between courses, you may check the "poster overview (pdf, 859 kB)".

If you are taking this curriculum, you can register for the specialisations of your choice in OSIRIS.

N.B. If you started your studies in cohort 2018 or before but still need to take some courses of your third year that are no longer taught, please check last year's prospectus or the Education and Exam Regulations to see which transition rules apply to you. If you need help planning your programme, please consult your study advisor.
