Program Description

Master of Science in Security and Cloud Computing (SECCLO) (Joint Erasmus+)

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Master's Program in Security and Cloud Computing (SECCLO)

The master’s program in Security and Cloud Computing, SECCLO, is an Erasmus Mundus program in the field of Computer Science and, more specifically, Security and Cloud Computing. The program is offered jointly by six European universities and students will study in two European countries and graduate with a double degree.

Overview

  • Degree awarded: Master of Science
  • The language of instruction: English
  • Duration: Two years (120 ECTS credits)
  • Programme start: Late August
  • School: School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Security and Cloud Computing at KTH

The program offers both practical engineering knowledge and theoretical insights into:

  • secure systems engineering
  • distributed application development
  • network and service architectures
  • cloud and mobile platforms

Practical engineering skills are combined with a strongly research-based curriculum. The program aims to attract special talent and educate game-changing, highly professional engineers to meet both the immediate hiring requirements and the long-term needs of the European ICT industry.

SECCLO has a focus on innovation and research and development. It differs from most information security programs in that it links security studies with product and service development skills. The ability to innovate and develop new products and services is what has the most potential for creating new business growth.

Study at two European universities

During the two-year program, students will get a unique experience of studying in two different countries while gaining a broad understanding of the latest and future technologies for secure cloud and mobile computing systems.

SECCLO is jointly offered by six European universities:

  • Aalto University, Finland
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology
  • The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway
  • Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Denmark
  • University of Tartu, Estonia
  • EURECOM, France

The double degree from two universities means wider opportunities for employment. It also means freedom to choose from several second-year specialization options that one university could not offer alone.

The first year is spent at Aalto University in Finland, the second year is spent at the university that offers the student’s chosen specialization.

Specialization in Communications Systems Design at KTH

The KTH specialization takes a holistic view on the Internet infrastructure together with its cloud-based services and applications and covers the topics required for developing the next generation of global communication systems that connect the cloud services and devices. Students work in a research environment with ample experimental resources and in close contact with industry – including leading system manufacturers, service developers and providers, and advanced early adopters.

The specialization includes one mandatory course and a wide range of elective courses, allowing the student to focus on different subject areas, such as network systems security, network infrastructures, or wireless networking. Many courses are problem-oriented with self-directed and project-based work.

Mandatory course:

  • Communication Systems Design Project (15 ECTS credits)

Elective courses (15 ECTS credits):

  • Management of Networks and Networked Systems (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Wireless Networks (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Management of Networks and Networked Systems (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Wireless Networks (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Project in Wireless Networks (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Sensor Based Systems (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Networked Systems Security (7.5 ECTS credits)

Why SECCLO?

Industry demand

There is a shortage of professionals in Europe and worldwide who are able to develop products and services for the modern cloud and mobile computing platforms and do this in a secure way.

Innovation and R&D focus

SECCLO differs from most information security programs in that it links security studies with product and service development skills. The ability to innovate and develop new products and services is what has the most potential for creating new business growth.

Double degree

Two Master of Science degrees from two universities mean wider opportunities for employment. It also means freedom to choose from several second-year specialization options that one university could not offer alone.

Career

There is a shortage of professionals in Europe and worldwide who are able to develop products and services for the modern cloud and mobile computing platforms and do this in a secure way.

Exciting career opportunities can be found in academia, as well as in the industry – on the producer side with system manufacturers and operators, and on the consumer side with industry, in the public sector, and among regulators.
