broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy,
telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software
engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics.

The Department Software Technology (ST) is one of the leading Dutch departments
in research and academic education in computer science, employing over 150
people. The department Software Technology is responsible for a large part of
the curriculum of the bachelor’s and master’s programmes in Computer Science as
well as the master’s programme Embedded Systems. The inspiration for its
research topics is largely derived from technical ICT problems in industry and
society related to large-scale distributed processing, embedded systems,
programming productivity, and web-based information analysis.


The Software Engineering Research Group SERG conducts research in the areas of
software evolution, software testing, software analytics and AI-based software
engineering. The section employs over 25 people, including academic staff,
around 15 PhD students, and several postdoctoral researchers. The software
engineering research group (SERG) is an internationally leading research group
in software engineering, and active in such areas as software architecture,
