Nordic countries are very innovative in mobile communications and an industrial and scientific cluster has formed to serve this area. The double degree programme NordSecMob – Master's Programme in Security and Mobile Computing is based on the research cooperation between the participating universities, and it offers in-depth knowledge in the field of data communications, mobile computing and information security.
The NordSecMob programme offers students with strong computer science background a possibility to specialize in mobile computing technologies. The mobile computing and communications industry provides the user with tools that make data and communication available anywhere and at any time. This programme is about the technologies and techniques needed to allow the user to benefit from these pervasive technologies in a secure and safe manner. New mobile devices extend mobile communication with powerful computing, enabling new services in new markets.
During the two-year programme, students study in English at two of the consortium universities and graduate with a Master of Science degree from both. The five universities jointly offering this programme and their specializations are:
- Aalto University School of Science: Technical Information Security and Network Services
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden: Communications Systems Design
- The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU): Information Security
- The Technical University of Denmark (DTU): Reliable Software Systems
- University of Tartu (UT) in Estonia: Mathematical Foundations of Cryptography
NordSecMob - Master's Programme in Security and Mobile Computing is a joint programme offered by Aalto University School of Science (formerly Helsinki University of Technology, TKK) in Finland, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Tartu (UT) in Estonia. The NordSecMob programme gives the students a chance to experience the cultures of two northern European countries and to graduate with a double degree (a Master of Science degree or similar from two universities).
The programme was selected as one of the European top-quality Masters Courses selected by the European Commission Erasmus Mundus Programme in 2006-2015.
