About Cyber Security (CSE) at EIT Digital Master School

Cybersecurity has been called the greatest threat to every company in the world. As the world becomes increasingly autonomous and tech-driven, this threat will only continue to grow. And if addressing the threat itself wasn’t enough, companies will also need to comply with an increasingly complex set of data protection rules and regulations. 

All of this requires that companies have access to a digitally equipped pool of talent. Unfortunately, with 35% of the European workforce having low to no digital skills, this is easier said than done.

This is where EIT Digital comes into play. With our Cybersecurity programme, you’ll not only build the skills to compete for these often high-paying jobs, but you will also gain the confidence to help drive the transformation towards a safer, more secure digital world.

What you will gain

Our interdisciplinary programme is designed to give you a general overview of the role that cybersecurity plays in creating a safe and inclusive digital society. It also equips you with practical skills in, for example, blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, ethical hacking, and quantum cryptography.

We use a combination of face-to-face workshops, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover everything from the design, development, and evaluation of secure computer systems to implementing confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, and privacy protection across networks systems.

This comprehensive approach to cybersecurity ensures that you are well-positioned to secure such roles as:

  • Cybersecurity consultant
  • Security analyst
  • Information security architect
  • Cybersecurity specialist
  • Computer forensics expert
  • Privacy-by-design consultant
  • Security auditor

To enhance your learning, the programme also includes an opportunity to get real-world experience working in some of Europe’s leading coworking centres and innovation incubators. This is a one-of-a-kind chance to apply your new skills and knowledge to solving actual cybersecurity challenges. You will also be able to augment your cybersecurity skills by taking tailored courses in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Unlock new career opportunities

Careers in cybersecurity are simply exploding, and this course gives you the training and skills to unlock a range of career opportunities – not only in IT, but also in designing products and services for telecommunications, gaming, e-learning, web development, and entertainment sectors. Thanks to the specialised training in entrepreneurship this programme provides, you’ll also be well-positioned to launch your own start-up or consultancy.

What students think about EIT Digital Master School

    Carlos Callejo

    Data science is a fascinating topic nowadays and I thought learning it would grant me great opportunities. Also, I am an avid traveler: studying at two different universities in two countries, and the chance to attend events in other countries, is a dream.

    The masters also gave me the opportunity to grow my network. In addition to this, a big part of my study costs was waived. I was not so sure about the Innovation and Entrepreneurship part at first. But I was interested in the business side of technology. I thought I could learn a lot from this and it can be helpful in my future. That is why I chose the EIT Digital Master School over the job. And, I have to say, it was the correct decision and my time at the EIT Digital Master School has been my best two years so far.

    Bruno Marafini

    I look back just saying that I made a perfect choice. That is due to a bit of luck. I did not know EIT Digital when I was studying in Bologna. A professor from Trento said: ‘for the ones interested, there is an opportunity of being an EIT Digital Master School student. I started to explore that straight away because I was curious. I found everything matching: I saw the programme Cyber Security, I saw I could do a year in the mountains in Trento, I saw EIT Digital as an opportunity to grow and get to know enterprises, experts, technology experts, business experts, business analysts, and so on, and I saw an opportunity to meet new people. So when I received the news that I got accepted, I was really happy.

    EIT Digital Master School provided me with a strong technical entrepreneurial education. During school, I have met serial entrepreneurs, business partners, top researchers, and other students and teachers from around Europe. We exchange ideas, they inspired me a lot and let me feel the endless creativity. They made me push a little harder, to learn something new and start considering how to make the world we live in better. Especially, the entrepreneurship courses helped me develop a reasonable and clear business development process for our product, which made us earn high scores in business feasibility aspects in the competition.
