Objective of the international master's programme Cyber Security is to train qualified graduates in the field of IT security who are able to meet the growing demands on cyber security in many areas of the society. It combines computer science content with a strong engineering background in cyber security in theory and practice.


Graduates will acquire basic knowledge of the most important principles and methods of cyber security and practical knowledge of their application. They will be capable to design, implement, and manage cyber security concepts. This qualifies them to develop new approaches and methods to protect IT systems and critical infrastructures which correspond to the current state of the art, while respecting the organizational and legal conditions.

Professional Fields of Activity

  • Graduates will be qualified to take on challenging tasks in industry, administration, and science to implement cyber security strategies or to contribute to the further development of the subject area in research. 
  • They expect a favorable labor market situation. There is a significant shortage of IT specialists in industry. The situation for cyber security experts will be particularly critical in view of the disproportionate market growth.
