Honours Programme in Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science invites exceptionally qualified Master's students to join the Department's Honours Programme. Students admitted to the Honours Programme are associated to the Department's research groups, and will have the opportunity for research-related part-time employment during the semesters. In summer, the students may have the possibility of entering into full-time employment in the department's competitive summer internship programme. The Honours students will also have access to the department's research facilities (computing resources, online services, library).
