Master’s Degree of Engineering, major in Cybersecurity


Program Description

The program of Cybersecurity aims at teaching students the knowledge and solid skills in advanced specification, design, development, implementation, and maintenance of secure systems.

In particular, students should understand and apply methods and techniques to investigate vulnerabilities of a given system or a solution such as scanning techniques and penetration testing, from a theoretical and practical point of view.
In addition, we focus on systems security management and audit. A didactic methodology is applied, based on classes, specialized seminars, conferences, case studies, practical sessions in computer labs, tutorials, projects, and self-learning. Students should participate in some international challenges around at least one of the cybersecurity domains (Systems, Networks, Telecommunication, Software, Web, and Hardware).
