Structure of the Master Specialisation MFoCS - Master Computing Science

Below overview below illustrates the basic organization of the 120 EC Mathematical Foundations specialisation,which consists of the following components:

Mandatory courses (18 EC)


Specialisation electives (18 EC)

To be chosen from the list of courses below. Please note: some courses are taught in alternating years; below list mentions whether they are taught in 2021-2022 or 2022-2023. If this causes problems for your planning, please contact the specialisation coordinator Jurriaan Rot, or student advisor Perry Groot to discuss this further.

Instead of the two latter courses, the corresponding Mastermath course of 8 EC is also allowed.


Specialisation specific research seminar (6ec)


Research internship (15 EC)


Computer, Science and Society (3 EC)

Master electives (24 EC)
Courses that are in some way related to the theme of Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science, subject to approval to the Examination Board. Courses from the Master's programme in Computing Science and Mathematics as well as the MasterMath programme are automatically approved, but overlap with other courses is not allowed.


Free electives (6 EC)
To be chosen from courses offered by Radboud University, but overlap with other courses is not allowed. Should be approved by the Examining Board.


Final thesis (30 EC): MSc-project.

The final thesis is scheduled in the last semester. The MSc project is finished by writing a Master's thesis. Generally speaking, students will do their Master's project under the supervision of a member of staff of their own university. However, students may, after consulting a local supervisor, choose to do a Master's project at another site, or an external project at a company or abroad.

The total amount of EC's of this programme should be 120 EC at least.

The transition rules for students who started the MFoCS specialisation in or before 2018-2019 are summarized on this page (prospectus of 2018); see also the Education and Exam Regulations).
