The aim of the Master of Science Program in Cyber Security from BAU is to educate qualified cyber security experts as desired by both public and private sectors.


While the rapid proliferation of computer systems and their penetration into every aspect of our daily lives improve both our work efficiency and the quality of our lives, it also expands the possibilities for malicious people and criminal organizations.

Furthermore, cyber attacks that have been conducted in recent years by some governments, for monitoring, manipulation and destruction of political and strategic information, pose  a critical threat against national security. Hence, the availibility of educated human capital in cyber security has become an urgent need for governments as well as companies and organizations.
