Objectives and content

A Bachelor's student in computer security studies how to design, implement, and analyse ICT infrastructures that are robust with regard to both random errors and targeted attacks. The goal of the programme is to provide the students with both a theoretical understanding and a practical ability to develop and maintain robust ICT systems. The methods and approach are those of the natural sciences, and they require that the successful candidate develop an understanding of research results in computer science and mathematics.

A Bachelor's degree in computer security forms a sound basis for further study at the Master's level.

Required Learning Outcomes

On completion of the study programme, the candidate will have the following learning outcomes:

Knowledge

The candidate

  • Has a practical understanding of the most common security challenges and vulnerabilities in ICT systems as well as methods to alleviate these problems.

Skills

The candidate

  • Has sufficient knowledge and experience to participate in security studies of ICT systems.
  • Has experience with software and technology for high integrity system development.

General competence

The candidate

  • Is able to work in individual and collaborative settings.
  • Can analyse and evaluate legal and ethical aspects of software projects.
  • Is able to give a critical and reflected view of his/her own and collaborator's work.
  • Can expand his/her field of knowledge on her own.
