Master Specialisation Cyber Security - General introduction

Computer security is a topic of growing importance, as IT affects ever more aspects of our daily lives. Businesses and government rely on IT to an ever larger degree. Both assessing the security of existing IT solutions and developing more secure solutions for the future pose major scientific and societal challenges.

The Master specialisation Cyber Security covers a broad range of topics that is important for computer security. This includes topics in computer science (software, computer networks, and hardware, especially smart-cards and RFID), but also mathematical aspects (cryptography and security protocols), as well as organizational and management issues, legal aspects, and societal issues (in particular privacy).

This Master specialisation is offered in a collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) under the name of TRU/e Master in Cyber Security. It involves taking some courses at the TU/e. Courses which are not offered by remote tele-lectures are always scheduled back-to-back to minimize travel time.

See the website of the TRU/e Security master for more information about background and practical matters involved.

Coordinator of the master specialisation Cyber Security is dr. Peter Schwabe.
