Cyber attacks on the political, business and private sectors are steadily increasing. In order to protect the rapidly growing databases and access to them against misuse, the protection of digital systems is becoming increasingly important. Experts in the field of cybersecurity are therefore highly demanded in business and in public authorities. The Cybersecurity master's degree program provides students who want to specialize in IT security with comprehensive analytical, methodological and technical skills.
Have you already completed a bachelor’s degree in the field of computer science, mathematics, IT system engineering, data engineering or in a related subject area? Would you like to undertake a practical and research-oriented computer science study program? Then we look forward to your application!
We enable students to learn in small groups with the special supervision of our professors. It is possible to begin the study program in the summer and in the winter semester. The application deadline for the summer semester is 15 January, and 15 July for the winter semester. The eligibility of applicants is determined by the Admissions Committee of the Hasso Plattner Institute.
