You already know how to code. And over the years you've gained the necessary theoretical and practical experience. But you want more. You want to take your qualities as a software engineer to the next level. To work with other software engineers on realistic, complicated issues. To solve isolated technical problems, but also to operate within the whole dynamic and extensive field that software engineering is. To not just know the how, but to understand the why.
The academic year 2020-2021 will start as planned in September. We expect small-scale on-site attendance, within the guidelines of the Dutch government, will be possible once again from September. This means we will be providing a form of hybrid education in the first semester, partly on-campus and partly online. From 1 July it will be clear what our hybrid education is going to look like.
Admission during COVID-19
In exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree or pre-Master’s. The study delay must be COVID-19 related and concern courses from the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year (February through June 2020). Check the Application and Admission pages for more information.
It is, if you:
The programme concerns the broad field of software engineering, a field that is in constant movement due to innovations in technology, design patterns and techniques. Software engineering distinguishes itself from classical computer science by its focus on human factors, system size and complexity of requirements. We believe a good software engineer is comparable to a good researcher, we teach you how to acquire relevant knowledge and how to reflect on your assumptions and ideas, by giving you:
non-technical, people-oriented courses on software architecture, requirements engineering and organisational aspects of software engineering;
a very intensive programme filled with challenging assignments, wherein 40 hour-weeks are the rule rather than the exception;
Whether you see your future in industry or in research, the staff of this Master's programme has just one mission: to make you a better software engineer and designer, who can make significant contributions to software (research) questions and projects.
