The CYBERUS master in cybersecurity prepares students for top jobs through a combination of technological, social and horizontal skills.
The curriculum rests on 4 of the 5 primary computing disciplines: computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and information technology. All students will be experts in computer science. Those in the IoT cybersecurity track will be more adept in computer engineering and in information technology while those in the software cybersecurity track will be more skilful in reliable and trustworthy software engineering. They will be familiar with the other fifth primary computing discipline, information systems, but will likely not be experts in that discipline through our curriculum.
Students acquire skills that enable them to work in research and Innovation/Development (R&I/D) environments. The programme includes (R&I/D) in one stand-alone module in semester 3 and as part of all semester 2 and semester 3 cybersecurity modules where R&I/D represents about 20% of the volume. Students can even be introduced to R&I/D in other modules through student projects (S2 and S3), entrepreneurship (S3) and in the 5-month internship (S4). This way, R&I/D permeates the whole curriculum, connecting closely with education and training, and guaranteeing that the content is driven by the latest research advancements and innovations.
Because soft/transversal/horizontal skills such as Communicating in a Multicultural Environment, Team Working, Problem-Solving, Leadership, and Creativity. The programme is deliberately multidisciplinary and holistic for this purpose. It offers courses, teaching/training approaches and evaluation methods that help develop them. They include language classes, entrepreneurship, projects, challenges and internships.
