Information Architecture (IA) is special programme within TU Delft's MSc Computer Science. You can follow this programme both within the Software Technology track as well as the Data Science & Technology track.

IA is a collaborative programme of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science (EEMCS) and the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM). Within the TPM faculty, the associated track falls under the MSc program in Complex Systems Engineering and Management (CoSEM). Students who have completed the IA special programme receive an official notice on their MSc certificates.

The IA programme combines aspects from computer science and from management, and thus addresses the problem of concurrently designing and engineering enterprises and their supporting ICT applications. It concentrates on the alignment between organizational needs and the engineering opportunities and solutions offered by novel ICT solutions. An information architect is a professional who bridges the gap between business and ICT.
