Are you looking to combine the engineering practices of computer science with a focus on innovation, business and management? Computer Science: Innovation for Change in a Digital Society is a two-year master’s programme that integrates these different disciplines to train future innovation leaders in a digital society.
Digitalisation has a major impact on society, industry and individuals, and comes with a number of opportunities as well as challenges. Fully reaping the benefits and successfully addressing the challenges, on a global and local level, requires both innovative technical solutions and skilled business leaders who understand and can engage with the rapid and continuous changes that characterise the digitalised society.
The programme is relevant for students who have studied computer science as part of their undergraduate degree. Rather than only pursuing advanced skills in computer science, the programme complements students’ prerequisite knowledge with its emphasis on skills in innovation, business, change and sustainability management. The programme focusses on user-centric innovation and change management within new and existing organisations and markets. Graduates of the programme will find job opportunities either as change agents in organisations, as entrepreneurs in the start-up sector, or as researchers in academia.
Organisations need new capabilities and competencies
To survive the rapid change of digitalisation, organisations today need new capabilities and competencies in fields such as software engineering, business development, innovation, technology management and leadership. Organisations are therefore looking for people who understand both technology as well as business and managerial aspects. By integrating advanced computer science knowledge with skills in innovation and business, as well as change and sustainability management, the master’s programme prepares students for future careers as drivers of innovation.
