Why study Cyber Security at EIT Digital?

"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.

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.
