You will gain state of the art technical knowledge and achieve the ability needed to drive your innovations to the market. The programme focuses strongly on the acquisition of transferable skills, especially in innovation and entrepreneurship.
Strength of program
While you get an excellent theoretical education you also get the opportunity to work with European top research facilities and leading business partners. The programme includes an internship programme in which students, teachers, and our business partners develop a project for your Master's thesis. This combination teaches you the creative skills that enable you to play a key role in the future of your field and drive innovations to the global markets. Numerous extracurricular activities and networking opportunities with fellow students at other universities make this programme a unique European experience.
Core values of the programme:
* A Strong Partner Network
* Guaranteed Internships
* Mentoring Programme
* Strong Technical Entrepreneurial Education
* Value Community
Successful graduates will easily find positions in companies that provide product services, such as Telecom companies, Financial Institutes, Software and Hardware vendors, et al, who require a high assurance in their ICT systems.
Graduates of the S&P major should also be in a good position to start their own company, providing product or technology development, business development or consultancy services.
Another career option is an advanced research career in industry and academy, including PhD education at the involved universities and at other top universities. Last but not least, the governmental security agencies lack a qualified pool of systems security engineers despite the hype about cyber attacks and security breaches that seem to flood the media.
