Why study the EIT Digital Security & Privacy programme?

What is the programme all about?

The programme in Security and Privacy focusses on the study of the design, development and evaluation of secure computer systems, which are also capable of ensuring privacy for future ICT systems. It follows a constructive security approach to teach the very complex and challenging field of information assurance. The aim is to provide students with an understanding of the concepts and technologies for achieving confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, and privacy protection for information processed across networks.

What are the career opportunities for graduates from the programme?

Graduates from the Security & Privacy master’s programme will qualify for jobs in international and local organizations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • (Cyber) Security consultant;
  • Security Analyst;
  • (Information) Security Architect;
  • Operation Manager;
  • Product Manager.

Through their multidisciplinary attitude, graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together. They will easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, game companies, e-learning, web developers, and entertainment. An alternative path would be to start your own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

How is the programme structured?

The programme is a double degree programme with studies at a university in one country in the first year (entry) and studies at a university in another country the second year (exit). The programme has an integrated technical content (Technical major) and business content (Innovation & Entrepreneurship – I&E minor). The I&E minor is shared between all programmes (link). An integral part of the second year is a Master’s thesis (30 ECTS).

The structure and content of the technical major are given below.
