About the organisation
Utrecht University has great ambitions for its teaching quality and study success rates. This also applies to its clear research profiles which are centred around four themes: Sustainability, Life Sciences, Youth & Identity, and Institutions. Utrecht University plays a prominent role in our society and contributes to finding the answers to topical and future societal issues.

The Faculty of Science at Utrecht University comprises six departments: Biology, Pharmacy, Information and Computer Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and  Physics and Astronomy. It has 3500 students and nearly 2000 employees, and is internationally known for its quality in research. The academic programs of the Faculty reflect developments in society and science of today. 

The Department of Information and Computer Science is nationally and internationally renowned for its fundamental research in computer science and information science. Its research is positioned around game technology, one of the four research themes of the Faculty of Science. The research of the department is grouped into four divisions: Software Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Worlds and Interaction Technology. The Department offers bachelor programmes in computer science and information science, and four English-language research master-programmes including Computing Science. High enrollment figures and good student ratings make the education very successful. 

Part of the research of the division Software Systems focuses on how programming languages, methods, and tools can be adapted to support program construction. More specifically, the research covers the following areas:

programming languages and compiler construction-tools
program analysis
interaction analysis, error diagnosis
advanced programming methods: generic programming, dependently-typed programming
program testing and verification
The division aims to design better programming languages and methods; to implement tools and languages that help programmers work more effectively; and to develop products and systems demonstrating the feasibility (and/or validity) of the ideas. An important application area studied in the department and the division is (serious) games. The division mainly contributes to the education in the bachelor programs information science and computer science, and to the master program Computing Science.
