Using scientific computing to predict outcomes and solve real-world problems
Computational Science seeks to explain the complex world we live in using technological simulations. By collecting data and creating computer models, computational scientists can make predictions that help to solve a variety of problems. For example:
In this programme, a joint degree between VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam (UvA), you will learn to apply algorithmic-driven procedures (step-by-step procedures for solving a problem in a limited number of steps) as well as mathematics and logic. You will also learn to apply the knowledge and skills you develop to different research areas in the natural sciences.
All students holding an academic Bachelor degree in one of the Sciences or Engineering disciplines may apply for the Master's.
Candidates for the programme should demonstrate sufficient knowledge in mathematics and computing skills and meet with the following requirements before they will be admitted to the programme: basic programming (any language), basic math knowledge in calculus and basic knowledge in probability theory and statistics.
We will also consider students that (slightly) deviate from the requirements as formulated above. We emphasize motivation in all such admissions and require a statement on motivation as a part of the admissions procedure.
