What you will study

The MSc Hazard and Disaster Management course will develop knowledge, technical skills, interpersonal and management skills, and experience. You will study a range of hazards using examples from the UK and other countries. This will provide you with the experience to assess risks and vulnerabilities from desk-based research, laboratory and field situations, consider hazard management and disaster risk reduction strategies, develop emergency plans, and critically review the concept of resilience along with techniques for its development.

You will consider the dynamic and multi-faceted nature of disasters and examine a range of aspects pertinent to the operational, political and socio-cultural issues involved in disaster relief, including aspects of international law. The course will ensure a sound working knowledge and experience with one of the mostly widely used GIS platforms, extensively used by many planning authorities, GOs and NGOs, and you will develop valuable skills in the acquisition and processing of spatial datasets with a wide variety of disaster management applications, along with the ability to visualise and depict spatial information.

Opportunities for study on residential field courses will include the use of field simulations either in Finland or in the UK, and the opportunity to examine environmental hazards and evaluate management strategies on an overseas residential field course. Currently, the field course takes place in Italy or Greece, to examine volcanic, seismic, landslide and tsunami hazards.

Teaching

The Disaster Management course is designed in a modular format and will be offered on a full and part time basis. Delivery will be mixed-mode, with a combination of traditional lectures, practicals and distance learning with supporting tutorials. For full time students, study will take place over 14 months, and for part time students, study may typically take two to three years.

The MSc Hazard and Disaster Management begins with a two week Summer School in August, where you will meet other students, academic tutors and visiting experts. You will:

  • Develop reflective learning skills
  • Enhance communication and team working skills in an international and multicultural setting.
  • Clarify the concepts of a disaster with experts and academic tutors.
  • Undertake a field course simulation training exercise, which focuses on survival skills
  • Reflect on experiences of victims of disaster

You will undertake a field course simulation training exercise, which will focus on survival skills. You will reflect on the experiences of victims of disasters, develop decision making through active participation and it will orientate you to the type of experiences that you may encounter in a disaster field situation.

After the summer school, lectures and self-directed learning will take place in the Autumn and Spring terms. Teaching and training will also include fieldwork within the region as well as the option for overseas residential fieldwork.

Study will utilise a range of diverse learning approaches and activities to acknowledge the rich and diverse character and content of the body of knowledge that forms this Master’s degree course. It will include:

  • Attending the Summer School
  • Lectures
  • Seminars and tutorials
  • Practical and laboratory work
  • Completing work packages by distance learning through the Virtual Learning Environment
  • Actively participating in computer workshops and laboratory work
  • Undertaking a range of field based studies and data collection
  • Participating in group based activities and simulations
  • One-to-one interactions with academic staff
  • Fieldwork including community-based learning
  • Self-directed study
  • Optional field or work-placement
  • Externally-linked activities and placements

Each week, lectures and practicals will take place. This normally involves seven to 10 hours of class contact timetabled within two days of the week. In addition, through the week you will be engaged in distance learning tutorials and activities, background reading, and working on a wide range of assessments. Some weeks will also have additional field or simulation time. For a full-time course, a minimum of 37 hours of study time per week is expected.

The course will also require attendance at a Summer School (two weeks), on another overseas residential field course (about ten days), and will also provide options for other extended field- or work-placements. UK and EU students complete the Summer School at the start of their course in August and International Students complete it at the end of their course. International students therefore begin their course in September and not August. This is to allow enough time for you to get your visa.

Why study Cyber Security?

"There are over one million unfilled cyber security jobs in the world!!" (Forbes)

At EIT Digital we see cybersecurity as one of the cornerstones of creating a safe and inclusive digital society. The omnipresence of digital technology has made that cybersecurity has even become an essential ingredient in defending our democratic values, as this recent article in politico.eu illustrates nicely.

Our Master School Programme Cyber Security has been developed to equip responsible cybersecurity specialists with the right knowledge and skills to be able to contribute to make the digital world a safer place.

The programme focuses on the study of the design, development and evaluation of secure computer systems, which are also capable of ensuring privacy for future ICT systems. 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.

Students will learn the fresh hot topics of the field including blockchain technologies, crypto currencies, practical (ethical) hacking, and quantum cryptography.

What are the career opportunities?

Graduates from the Cyber Security (CSE) master’s programme will qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • Cyber Security consultant
  • Security Analyst
  • Information Security Architect
  • Cyber Security Specialist
  • Computer forensics expert
  • Privacy-by-design consultant
  • Security Auditor

Cyber Security is also a burgeoning field for the design and development of new products and services. Graduates will easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, game companies, e-learning, web developers, and the entertainment industry.

Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together.

An entrepreneurial path is also open to those who seek to start their own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

Why choose Cyber Security at EIT Digital?

The EIT Digital Cyber Security (CSE) Master’s degree offers:

  • Cutting edge technical content within the field of Cyber Security
  • Studies at two of Europe´s foremost technical universities leading to a double degree
  • A close integration with tailored business courses in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • A thesis work well grounded in industrial security and privacy problems
  • Access to the competence of eight EIT Digital innovation action lines, not least through a summer school between the two years.
  • Access to the co-location centres and innovation ecosystems of the EIT Digital nodes.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.

Why study Cyber Security?

"There are over one million unfilled cyber security jobs in the world!!" (Forbes)

At EIT Digital we see cybersecurity as one of the cornerstones of creating a safe and inclusive digital society. The omnipresence of digital technology has made that cybersecurity has even become an essential ingredient in defending our democratic values, as this recent article in politico.eu illustrates nicely.

Our Master School Programme Cyber Security has been developed to equip responsible cybersecurity specialists with the right knowledge and skills to be able to contribute to make the digital world a safer place.

The programme focuses on the study of the design, development and evaluation of secure computer systems, which are also capable of ensuring privacy for future ICT systems. 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.

Students will learn the fresh hot topics of the field including blockchain technologies, crypto currencies, practical (ethical) hacking, and quantum cryptography.

What are the career opportunities?

Graduates from the Cyber Security (CSE) master’s programme will qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • Cyber Security consultant
  • Security Analyst
  • Information Security Architect
  • Cyber Security Specialist
  • Computer forensics expert
  • Privacy-by-design consultant
  • Security Auditor

Cyber Security is also a burgeoning field for the design and development of new products and services. Graduates will easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, game companies, e-learning, web developers, and the entertainment industry.

Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together.

An entrepreneurial path is also open to those who seek to start their own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

Why choose Cyber Security at EIT Digital?

The EIT Digital Cyber Security (CSE) Master’s degree offers:

  • Cutting edge technical content within the field of Cyber Security
  • Studies at two of Europe´s foremost technical universities leading to a double degree
  • A close integration with tailored business courses in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • A thesis work well grounded in industrial security and privacy problems
  • Access to the competence of eight EIT Digital innovation action lines, not least through a summer school between the two years.
  • Access to the co-location centres and innovation ecosystems of the EIT Digital nodes.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
