Career orientation and prospects

Career orientation

The master Information Sciences by its content mix of management and computing science related courses is already very much oriented towards a professional career. By choosing the master courses of your choice, you take a first step in the direction that you want to professionalise in: Security and Privacy, or Alignment and IT. Also, there are several individual courses that, in one way or another, will contribute to career orientation, either by guest lectures or otherwise. The courses in the GIP-House complex (Software Development Entrepreneurship or System Development Management) are a case in point.

In addition to these activities in your Master's programme, you may also contact the Radboud Career Service Science. Apart from the help they can offer in finding you a job, they organise events and workshops to provide you with the skills you may need.

Career prospects

There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can bridge the gap between the builders and the users of IT to ensure good, user-friendly technology that meets an organisation's needs. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals. For some examples of careers that graduates might end up in, see this link.
