What can humans do better than machines? What is possible to solve with the help of computers?
These questions are not fully answered yet, and for most practical applications, one has to rely on modeling. This master program will teach you how to develop understanding of complex and uncertain contexts through the use of models. Modeling breaks a complicated, unstructured problem into smaller pieces that can be handled by algorithms and computers.
This workflow has a lot in common with computational thinking. In this study program we use computational thinking actively as a strategy to investigate specific problems, decide on strategies for solving the problems, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the chosen solution, as well as how to communicate the analysis and recommended solution to team members and managers.
