The Master’s Degree Programme in Information and Communication Technology provides versatile and high quality ICT education in selected fields of ICT, with an established reputation in innovative, interdisciplinary, and international education.
The Programme has international double-degree collaboration with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Master School and with the Fudan University in Shanghai, China. In the academic year 2020-2021, the Programme offers four specialisation tracks:
- Cyber Security
- Smart Systems
- Digital Health
The Cyber Security specialisation track gives its students profound and substantial education and expertise in the field of security and technology of networked systems. The track focuses on researching cyber security technologies developed for networked systems and applications of the communication-intensive future. The technological topics covered include security of smart environments, system and network security, security of communication systems and applications, and designing secure systems. Students will explore both technological and theoretical scientific advances in the field and apply them to practice. The graduates will have strong technological, theoretical and practical understanding in cyber security. With their new knowledge and skills, the graduates can proceed to build a successful career in securing the information and communication technology industry.
Programme in brief
A. Advanced-level studies in the major subject module 40 ECTS
B. Thematic studies (minor subject) module 20 ECTS
C. Elective studies module 20 ECTS
D. Master of Science in Technology thesis module 40 ECTS
In the academic year 2020–2021, the Programme offers four specialisation tracks:
The Cyber Security specialisation track focuses on security technologies for networked systems and applications of the communication-intensive future based on research. The technological topics covered include system and network security, security of communication systems and applications, and security in system design. The education is based on current cyber security research and includes also hands-on modules on state-of-the art vendor systems from our industrial partners. Students obtain profound and substantial education and expertise in the field of secure networked systems. Cyber security is approached in a multi-disciplinary fashion with compulsory studies also on cryptographics and management aspects of cyber security.
In the Master’s thesis, the student must prove his/her ability to do scientific work, mastering of research methods, knowledge of the research field, and skills in scientific writing. In writing the Master’s thesis, the student needs to apply their technological skills, abilities and expertise into identifying an engineering problem, studying its relevance to the field, proposing and designing a solution to the problem, testing and analysing the solution and evaluating its usefulness. The thesis is often commissioned by a company, which means that an efficient and capable student could be directly employed by the commissioning company, which could lead to a successful career in the industry. On the other hand, a scholarly oriented student might choose a thesis topic relating to the research conductud by a research group at the University and apply for the position of doctoral candidate upon completion of an academically distinguished Master’s thesis. Topics of recently completed Master’s theses include:
- Mitigating Modern Organization-Wide Network Threats and Data Leakages
- Evaluation of Machine Learning Classifiers for Mobile Network Intrusion Detection Systems
- Software Based Malware Analysis and Mitigation in Virtual Machines
- Frequent Attack Dictionary Decision Tree Method for Advanced Signature-Based Intrusion Detection
- Security requirements in tradable IoT ecosystems
- An Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Framework for Online Investigations
- Applying Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills Model to Improve Information Security Policy Compliance among Employees
- Experimental Penetration Testing Teaching and Learning for High School Students Using Cloud Computing
- Access Control Process for a SaaS Provider
- A SystemC Simulator for Secure Data Transfer in Healthcare Internet of Things
TRACK-SPECIFIC ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The applicant’s previous degree on the basis of which s/he is seeking admission to the Master’s Degree Programme in Information and Communication Technology must be in a relevant field of study. Relevant fields of previous studies for the Cyber Security specialisation track are:
- Communication and Network Systems,
- Software Engineering,
- Computer Science,
- Computer Technology,
- Information Technology, or
- other relevant fields of studies providing sufficient knowledge of computer network technology, programming and mathematics.
In addition to the education diploma and language certificate, you should include testimonials of any relevant work experience in your application.
You may apply to a maximum of two specialisation tracks out of the four tracks offered at the Master’s Degree Programme in Information and Communication Technology. The choices should be put into order of preference. When applying to the Health Technology or Smart Systems specialisation field, you can also apply for the double degree programme jointly organised with the Fudan University (Shanghai).
