What do you like about the Master's programme and why?
I like the fact that the Master's programme I'm following is practical. It has a lot of interfaces with the business field.
What do you think about the atmosphere in class?
The Master's programme of Information Sciences is rather small. I like that part, it makes the classes more interactive, and the connection with the teachers is more close than it would be in a Master's programme with over 100 students.
What do you find most challenging in your Master's programme?
I found the Master thesis the biggest obstacle. Your thesis is the most significant part of your programme and it takes a lot of commitment. I have overcome this obstacle by choosing a topic I knew almost nothing about, so I could continue learning and keep my interest in my subject.
Are you currently doing an internship?
At the moment, I'm doing an internship at the Cyber Risk Department at Deloitte while writing my master thesis on security in DevOps. The topic is incredibly exciting, and at Deloitte there are a lot of smart people who can help me and who have practical experience.
Why do you think is it important that there are people out there with this degree?
I think this degree will allow you to have technical knowledge and at the same time stay in touch with the business side. A lot of technical projects fail because there is no alignment between those two. The world now faces a lot of cyber threats, and this Master's programme will help managing and translating them.
