How should we process information to create value for businesses, individuals and society? How can we help organisations in their digital transformation?
Can a company's IT be both profitable and environmentally friendly? What is the role of green IT in digital inclusion and a sustainable society?
The Master's in Information Sciences spans Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and its practical application in a society that is increasingly digital. To lead the way, society needs a new generation of IT professionals who know how to create socio-technical systems that support the needs of modern organisations, from enterprises, SMEs and NGOs, to online communities and the public at large. At the same time, modern society is concerned with its sustainability footprint in terms of environmental, social, technical and economic priorities. This requires IT professionals and organisations to become more digital while doing business responsibly.
The Information Sciences programme is open to both Dutch and International Students. The Faculty's Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.
In order to gain admission to the Information Sciences Master's programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor's degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).
