Study programme of Information Sciences

At Radboud University, we believe that good information specialists are not only experts in information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of IT systems, but they also form the connection between the people and organisations involved in using, designing, and building such systems. You will therefore need to learn to work together with different stakeholders within a project, such as the super-technical programmer, the demanding client and, in some cases, the computer illiterate user. You will need to be able represent all their interests and find a solution that is satisfactory to all. This takes technical understanding as well as managerial skills.

Because of this last aspect, the Master’s programme has been set up in close collaboration with Nijmegen School of Management. However, the scientists at the Institute of Computing and Information Sciences (ICIS) at Radboud University also work closely together with colleagues from a wider range of disciplines, such as law, privacy, medicine, brain research, and artificial intelligence.
