Web & Information System Specialization
The specialization Web & Information Systems in the two-year Master program Computer Science (Dutch and English program) is geared towards information system development in general and information and application development in the context of the Web. In this specialization, you will will learn about different data representation techniques, including the representation of the semantics of data, as well as how to process data, reason on data, and link data from different information system. You will also acquire thorough technological and scientific knowledge related to the newest technological developments in the context of the Web. This specialization is mainly supported by the research groups STARLab and WISE. Students can participate in research in the area of Adaptive Web-based Systems, Conceptual Modeling Methodologies, Cross Media Information Spaces, E-learning, Mobile Web, Multi-touch and Gesture Recognition, Ontologies, Ontology Engineering, Semantics, Serious Game Development, Variability Modeling, Virtual Reality Application Development, Web Engineering, and so on.
