Cyber Security (joint program EPFL-ETHZ)
We hear about data breaches and attacks on critical infrastructure every day. How do we safeguard our information society? How do we promote trust? How do we engineer an information infrastructure that has security built in from the start in a principled way? These are the central questions of Cyber Security - an exciting and crucial research area within Computer Science.
In collaboration with ETH Zurich, this Master’s joint-degree program offers a broad set of courses such as cryptography, formal methods, systems, network and wireless security. It aims to provide both foundational and applied knowledge in this quickly expanding domain by leveraging expertise from both universities.
This program is mainly targeted at students who have a Bachelor in either Computer Science or Communication Systems and will offer graduates excellent job perspectives.
