Description/content

Industry 4.0, smart technologies and the huge range of online communication platforms are changing the way we live, work and communicate with each other. Always online, we rely on databases, automate production processes and cannot imagine a life without smart systems.

(Video) MSc Computer Science (Cyber Security)

However, these new technologies and changes are also accompanied with huge risks. Networks, infrastructures, systems and data are under constant attack by hackers, cyber criminals, malware and viruses.

Thus information security specialists who know how to successfully defend network attacks, protect sensitive data and analyse and manage these risks are in high demand. Apart from IT expertise, they need to have an extended knowledge about business processes and infrastructures and need to be able to keep operations running, even under the steady threat of cyber attacks.

Our new Master of Science programme prepares students for these often difficult and unprecedented tasks by giving them a thorough education in Information Security and Computer Science. Modules in Information Security Management, Security Technologies and IT Operations Management (DevOps) foster the information security expertise of our Master's students. In addition, they also get to know current topics such as Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.

In order to be prepared to work in different business environments, the Cyber Security students learn know-how to perform IT audits as well as penetration tests.

Upon graduation, the Computer Science students will have received a well-rounded information security education with plenty of hands-on experience in projects that will not only help them become the cyber security experts of tomorrow but also will enable them to work in a range of companies, institutions and start-ups.

Additionally, a third of the city area is composed of parks, rivers and lakes. Berlin is a centre for politics, media and science, and it is renowned for its culture and arts scene as well as its buzzing nightlife. It is rich in history and historical monuments and has a well-connected public transport system that students can use with their discounted public transport tickets. Well-known for its innovation capacity, the German capital has a vibrant start-up scene and is known as a start-up hotspot in Europe. In addition, Berlin’s low living costs and moderate rental prices, compared to other capital or European cities, make the city very attractive for both international and domestic students.

Dresden is a perfect study location. Not only is the city of art and culture a popular tourist destination with its many famous sights, but it has also developed into one of Germany’s strongest and most dynamic economic locations over the past few years. As living costs and rental prices are still relatively low, Dresden is a favourable city for students from around the world. If you add the vast array of cultural events, the diverse nightlife and the city’s beautiful location in the Elbe valley, one might not be surprised that Dresden is a great place to live and study in.

Hamburg is a city that is green, lively and economically strong. Located close to rivers and the ocean, Hamburg has more bridges than Venice and is part of the second largest metropolitan region in Germany. Compared to other cities in Germany, Hamburg has moderate living costs, a high standard of living and a secure infrastructure for students.
