About

The Cybersecurity program of the Hamad Bin Khalifa University is a multidisciplinary graduate program addressing issues that ensure secure and reliable operations at all levels of interconnected computing and networking systems.

Overview

The Master of Science in Cybersecurity is designed to train graduate scholars, professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, and researchers in the advanced knowledge and skills required to fully understand and implement the technologies, tools, management methods, and policy issues related to cybersecurity.

The Cybersecurity program of the Hamad Bin Khalifa University not only covers multidisciplinary fields related to cybersecurity technology but also examines policy, ethics, and management related to IT security and cyber threats. The program leverages strong partnerships and collaborations both within HBKU and beyond the university. Delivery of the program involves collaborations with HBKU’s research institutes, most notably with QCRI.

This program also builds on work with industrial and governmental partners, both local and international, who are currently working on critical projects aimed at providing solutions to address global challenges and lead to a safer cyber world, in support of Qatar’s aspirations in this area.

The program offers its students the option of either completing a research thesis or working on an industrial project. The thesis requires in-depth theoretical and research components, while the industrial project offers a route for students to further develop real-world problem-solving experience.

The program includes a core course in leadership and innovation, ensuring that all graduates are equipped with the skills and knowledge to assume leading roles within academic, governmental, and non-governmental organizations.
