Master’s Degree Syllabus

Our master’s programme in IT Security aims to convey methods and knowledge and enables you to acquire skills in key fields of informatics and IT security that empower you to comprehend and process multifaceted issues concerning information processing. In contrast to our bachelor’s level, here we emphasise skills to work scientifically. Our master’s programme is science-driven and designed to continue from the previous level. It concentrates primarily on analysis, description, design and validation of secure and reliable information processing systems.
