Everyone is online. As a result, organisations have more and more opportunities to generate and use data, which is exactly what you will learn to do in the Information Sciences (previously named Information, Multimedia and Management) programme at VU Amsterdam. For example, this could involve developing and implementing a search engine, or a museum website that can predict what the visitor is interested in. As an Information Sciences student, you will study new applications and markets and create innovative and user-friendly solutions.
There will be plenty of contact with your lecturers and fellow-students, as you will work together on a range of practical assignments. All lecturers have considerable work experience in the public and commercial sectors, both on a national and an international level. Information Sciences is a dynamic programme with a focus on recent developments. You will learn both communication skills and technical skills, and – especially during the third year – you will take a more practical approach, completing a serious assignment for a representative organisation.
