In our Privacy, Information and Cyber Security degree offered by the University of Skövde you will learn to develop, shape and become an integral part of the digital society of the future, where information security and privacy is in the forefront.
The focus of your studies
The programme offers comprehensive studies in privacy, information security and cyber security, providing you with unique skills. During the courses of the programme, you will learn how a systematic approach to information security can be implemented in an organisation through various management systems. You will also learn about data protection, methods for discovering and stopping data packages containing damaging files and the management of security risks in common solutions for the Internet of Things. The programme is concluded with a master thesis.
A majority of the teachers in the programme have experience in privacy, information and cyber security research and are working on ground-breaking projects so that students are exposed to the latest trends in this important and exciting area.
The programme is built on interactive lectures, seminars and assignments and students are expected to participate during the scheduled sessions. There are several mandatory seminars throughout the programme. We offer the programme on campus and online, but all sessions are combining online and campus students. Thus, to be successful in your studies it is important that you are able to attend the lectures, seminars and other sessions live as no sessions will be recorded. We made an active decision to use this approach because we believe that the subject is best explored in dialogue and we do not attempt to offer a self-paced study program.
