Structure of the Master Specialisation Cyber Security

The master specialisation Cyber Security consists of the following components:

  • Specialisation basis (30 ec)
  • Specialisation electives (at least 15 ec)
  • Seminar (5 or 6 ec, depending on the course chosen)
  • Research internship (15 ec)
  • Philosophy course (3 ec)
  • Master electives (12 ec)
  • Free electives (10 ec)
  • Master thesis project (30 ec)

The total amount of EC's of this programme should be 120 EC at least.

The above components are further described below. Some additional explanation:

  • Courses with a TRUE-course code and marked TU/e are taught at Eindhoven University of Technology, the remaining courses are taught at Radboud University.
  • Courses taught in Eindhoven are 5 ec. Courses taught in Nijmegen are 6 ec, with the exception of mandatory courses that are part of the specialisation basis: these are also 5 ec.
  • Students who take one or more 5 ec courses from Eindhoven as part of their free electives may end up needing 1 or 2 ec to reach the amount of 120 ec needed to complete their programme. For these students, a small project can be defined in relation to the specialisation or to one of the courses taken. Please contact the specialisation coordinator, dr. Peter Schwabe, if this applies to you.
  • Further details about the course programme, schedule, and particulars regarding courses of the Eindhoven University of Technology can be found on https://www.true-security.nl/curriculum/.
