Information security is primarily concerned with the protection of information assets. Today, most of the information resides in - and is communicated via IT systems. Hence, these systems need to be protected from various threats and attacks. The goal of information security is to protect with respect to the information its confidentiality, integrity and availability. Naturally, it all depends on the business needs and legal requirements. The area of information security is both exciting and overreaching since it also entails the protection of the essential and critical cyber infrastructure, trying to prevent or solve a wide range of computer crimes and other illicit activities, as well as protecting human rights, freedom and democracy. One of the many objectives is to devise new methods and strategies for cyber readiness and defence. At Stockholm University, we approach the subject area from both the business side and the technical side. This masters programme includes courses such as: Introduction to Digital and Information Security, Secure Software, Information Security in Organisations, Network Security, Information Security Project Management, Cyber Security, Legal aspects of information security and Cyber Forensics. Career The job market for information security professionals is very good. Information security graduates from Stockholm University work, among other, as information security managers (CISO), information security consultants, cyber security specialists, cyber and digital forensics professionals. Some graduates choose to pursue their careers in research education that eventually leads to a doctoral degree in this exciting field. What’s your ambition?

Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering with Emphasis on Structural Engineering The aim of the program is to have the student prepare for participation in advanced product development or research within mechanical engineering. The aim is that the student after completed degree should master a coordinated working method at analysis for decision support in the product development process, the extensive modules of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation and optimisation. Coordinated working method at analysis for decision support. The student is expected to inform herself/himself about current field-relevant research and considerably increase her/his ability to communicate her/his own contributions with scientific facts and relations both orally and in writing by means of modern tools for visualisation and documentation. The coordinated working method can in short be described according to: Virtual models for description of interesting product properties and behaviours are developed, verified and used for simulations of the functionality of the system. The Simulation result is compared with experimental results of studies on delimited parallelly developed physical models, or with experiences from earlier development, with the aim of validating the virtual models. The coordination also implies that the virtual models are used to design good physical models and measurement strategies. This process is repeated until sufficient agreement is achieved. Simulation with the virtual model can then be used for optimisation. If the optimisation shows a need for changes that influence the relevance for the current model, the whole procedure is repeated. More detailed descriptions are, when necessary, gradually added to the model during the ongoing development of the analysed product. At the development of a completely new product, several iterations are usually required. When a new variant of a product is developed, earlier experiences can largely be reused. Learning outcomes In addition to the nationally regulated aims, which are found under point 8, the following aims apply to the education. After completion of the education, the student should: - be able to formulate and validate numerical and analytical models of mechanical systems by means of both advanced software and by means of strong simplified relations for important characteristics - be able to specify, carry out and interpret measurements and analysis of vibrations for rotating machines and other mechanical structures - be able to specify, carry out and interpret experimental modal analysis on mechanical structures - be able to carry out simulation of mechanical systems with parameters received from numerical models and/or experiment, for example regarding effect from imposed load and/or simple structural changes - be able to carry out optimisation of mechanical systems based on results of numerical models, simulations and measurements to meet the market needs and draw use of technological progress - be able to coordinate activities and report received results in an understandable way under the observing of general rules and practice for scientific writing - understand effects on society and environment of the student’s own activities Mode of delivery The program is constituted by, in substance, compulsory courses that build on each other in a given order. Only one of the concluding courses is chosen dependent on expected specialisation of the following degree project. The intended study path for the programme is illustrated below, followed by a brief description of compulsory courses and elective courses. More detailed descriptions are found in respective course syllabus. The study programme goes through continuous evaluation and development which can mean that the range of courses offered and placing of courses in time is changed. Prerequisites For admission to the study programme, a Bachelor's degree or a Bachelor of Science in Engineering within mechanical engineering are required, preferably with specialisation in structural mechanics. A higher education qualification should contain mathematics including matrix algebra, multivariable analysis and transform theory, basic mechanics and programming. The requirement in English is English B. Admission Criteria For second-cycle programmes, special selection is applied. The special selection implies that one or several selection criteria are weighted together according to a method that results in a tariff. Method 12: special selection for master's programme within the field of technology. Selection steps: Academic degree - The first stage of the assessment process consists of an assessment of how relevant the field and specialisation of the applicant's earlier higher education qualifications is for the specialisation of the programme applied to. The assessment is made in three categories: minimum relevance given the entry requirements = tariff 0, medium-high relevance= tariff 0.5, high relevance = tariff 1. TOEFL - Finally the applicant’s TOEFL is standardised; respective IELTS-levels in English to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to be qualified and 1 is the maximum level on the test. Applicants that are exempted from showing their levels in English with TOEFL/IELTS-levels are given the tariff 1. These three values are added to a collected tariff that can vary between 0-3. Qualified applicants with the same qualifications: If two or more applicants to a first - and second-cycle alternative have the same tariff, lots are drawn.

Content The programme spans 120 higher education credits (ECTS) and is divided into four semesters. The first semester starts with a course focusing on the three roles, followed by a project where the objective is to work on a real problem where all three roles are needed to solve it. During the second semester, if you have a background in SE, you will get the opportunity to broaden your knowledge base by choosing courses in other subjects. Otherwise, you can study courses with a traditional SE content. The second semester also contains a project, where you assume one of the roles. You continue to focus on this role when you choose courses for the third semester and start your thesis preparation. During the fourth semester you concentrate solely on the master thesis project. In this programme, you work closely with researchers work on projects during all semesters. These will often be related to a real problem introduced by company. This way scientific quality can be combined with industrial relevance. Theoretical courses are provided as well, with a mix of seminars and group activities with presentations by visiting researchers and practitioners. [-]
