The department of Software Science studies models for the design and analysis of software. Our group has expertise covering a broad range of topics concerning software construction and analysis, e.g. foundations of software (type theory, proof assistants, concurrency, co-algebras, and term rewriting), model-based testing and model learning, combining formal verification and machine learning, and functional programming and domain-specific languages. We bridge the gap between theory and practice through collaboration with stakeholders from industry and other application domains.

The Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) comprises an enthusiastic and devoted team of excellent scholars who closely collaborate in a flat organisational structure. We work on the basis of trust and professional integrity. Focus on the individual means we take each employee's phase in life and career into consideration. Consequently, iCIS has been particularly successful in attracting staff from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities, male and female. In recognition of this, iCIS received the 2017 Minerva award for gender and diversity from Informatics Europe. The fast-growing student numbers have not hampered teaching provision at iCIS as it is consistently evaluated as one of the best (see e.g. Nationale Studenten Enquete, 2018).

The Faculty of Science is a complete, student-oriented science faculty where research and education are closely related. The faculty aims to be an academic community with an international character, where staff members from different backgrounds can combine their talents with the common goal of being a leading faculty of science in Europe.
