Experimental computer science - New solutions for globally distributed
As the internet develops, it has come to include cloud computing centres, smartphones, RFID tags and sensor networks. This connected world brings new opportunities to science and business, but also new challenges to privacy and security. You will study entirely new software architectures and large-scale, geographically distributed systems which can serve billions of users. Scalability, performance, security and visualization are key topics.

Experimental computer science research
This Master’s emphasizes hands-on experiments, featuring many software lab courses that train you to solve challenging research problems using software experiments. You will work on design, implementation, testing and performance analysis of complex system software. Operating in small teams, you will train your collaborative research skills. Courses include Parallel Programming and Distributed Systems, Cluster and Grid Computing and Computer Graphics.

Career prospects
PDCS is a research Master’s, which means that most of our students are preparing for a career in academic or industrial research. Many of our graduates continue their studies by obtaining a PhD research position at a top university. Others join industrial research laboratories. The PDCS programme is also an excellent preparation for students who are considering a different career path. For example, some students may want to join high-tech companies where their specific skills are needed for the execution of innovative projects. Others will be snapped up by firms looking for the ideal combination of engineering skills and creative problem-solving abilities. Some graduates have an entrepreneurial drive and start their own companies.
