Digitalization is taking over most aspects of business and life. While computation relies on distributed data processing and storage, pervasive digitalization goes much further, raising questions regarding security and privacy of data and reliability of computations on this data.
Starting September 2018, six European universities offer an Erasmus Mundus joint double degree Master’s programme in Security and Cloud Computing (SECCLO), giving you a broad understanding of technologies for mobile and cloud computing, and providing you with the skills to design, build, and evaluate secure computing systems as a computer science professional.
The programme gives you a broad understanding of technologies for mobile and cloud computing, and provides you with the skills to design, build, and evaluate secure computing systems as a computer science professional.
During your two years of study, you will study the first year at Aalto University, then specialize at one of the five partner universities. Upon graduation, the student will be awarded a double degree diploma, i.e. a diploma from each university, at which you study.
- Communications Systems Design – The Royal Insitute of Techonlogy (KTH), Sweden
- Information Security – Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
- Reliable Distributed Systems – Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
- Cryptography- University of Tartu (UT), Estonia
- Big Data Security – EURECOM, France
You´ll find more information on the specializations and curricula on the SECCLO programme website.
Specialization in Reliable Distributed Systems at DTU
At DTU, you will learn to design and analyze secure and reliable computer systems including embedded, cloud and software-intensive systems and services. Students work on protecting computer systems with vital functions, from controlling critical infrastructure to providing public services over the web, against threats from vandals, criminals, industrial espionage and cyber-terrorism.
You will learn to design embedded and distributed cloud-based systems, and to provide essential and secure functionality under a range of competing constraints: low computational resources, high availability, reliable communication, and adequate security.
The DTU specialization also covers proactive methods and techniques for engineering the safe and secure software-intensive services typically found in cloud-based systems. The courses provide the formal underpinnings for developing these kind of systems, together with elective courses that allow the students to explore the wider context.
As a SECCLO graduate of the specialization in Reliable Distributed Systems at DTU, you will be able to design and develop the next generations of products and services for the ICT industry as well as financial companies within the fields of information security and systems.
Upon graduation you may be eligible to enter a PhD programme at any of the participating universities, but you are also qualitied for demanding positions in industry. Typical job titles include: security engineer/specialist, security architect, software engineer/specialist, research engineer.
Admission and deadlines
Please observe that the application deadline for admission to SECCLO the 2019 intake is 4 January 2019.
The deadlines for a potential second application round will be added at the SECCLO programme website later.
