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).

As of 2021, this master specialisation is fully taught at Radboud University Nijmegen, that is, it is no longer taught in a joint collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Several new courses were introduced to replace the courses that were taught at TU/e in the previous curriculum. In 2022-2023, two new courses in the Cyber Security field were added (see the changes and transision rules).

Students who started in the TRU/e Master in Cyber Security in previous years will still be able to complete their programme as courses from that curriculum are still being offered as 6 EC courses (see the transition rules in last year's prospectus). For the courses previously taught in Eindhoven, please check the webpages of the TRU/e Master.

Coordinator of the master specialisation Cyber Security is dr. Ileana Buhan.
