Information Security Technology

From unauthorized access to malicious manipulation: the threats that exist when storing or sending electronic data are on the increase. For that reason, the security of that data is of ever greater importance. Information Security Technology provides essential tools for safe communication and protection of data.

This Master's program is offered by a collaborative venture between our department and our counterpart at Radboud University. The program has been structured in such a way that you spend one day per week on average taking courses at the other university.
The Master's program in Information Security Technology is a special Master's degree program that falls within the Master's degree in Computer Science and Engineering.
