This new one year Master’s Programme with its unique multidisciplinary content reflects the need for specialists within IT security and digital forensics in our digital society.
The growing use of the internet and digital communications systems, especially in the shape of the Internet of things, leads to an increasing demand for competence in network forensics.
The aim of the programme is to enable students to develop the theoretical and practical expertise required to work with forensic network analysis and to conduct research within the field. Furthermore, students will acquire specialised knowledge within areas such as datamining, digital security and cybercrime with regard to issues of democracy and participation in society. The MSc in Network Forensics is an interdisciplinary programme formerly linked to network technology, cyber security and societal needs, contributing to the sustainable development of digital services and implementations of online infrastructures.
The programme's multidisciplinary connection to both technology and social sciences builds a theoretical and practical competence for work within IT forensic network analysis and offers deeper knowledge within data mining, cyber security and investigation of cybercrime.
The programme is a further education for those of you who have a Bachelor’s Degree in IT Forensics and Information Security, or the equivalent.
A security professional needs to understand principles of architecture, design, management, interoperability, and evolution, and to apply them effectively in a world of rapidly-changing technologies and expectations. The MSc in Software and Systems Security teaches these principles and their application.
This Programme teaches the principles of systems security, together with the tools, methods, and techniques that support their application. It spans the technical and organisational aspects of the practice of information security in an up-to-date context.
It offers working professionals the opportunity to learn more about the technological advances that are changing their lives, through a course of part-time study at one of the world’s leading universities.
