Master of Cyber Security

Know the systems, understand the risks, and shape the cyber security policies in your company

The need for cyber security is rising – do you need to upgrade your competencies?

Due to the increasing digitalization in Danish society and in the rest of the world, focus has increased on IT security and the various risks companies, authorities, and citizens face. As a result, DTU Compute Continuing  Education has created a Master’s program in Cyber Security, so that companies and authorities have the  opportunity to qualify and train IT security staff and managers to deal with the increasing pressure in relation to cybercrime.

Admission to the Master of Cybersecurity will be paused in 2023.

Admission to the Master of Cybersecurity in 2022 was less than expected, so DTU has decided to put admission on hold. This is done in order to thoroughly analyze the reasons for the surprisingly low take-up and investigate how we can best ensure that content, framework and marketing are adapted to the identified target groups of managers with cyber security responsibilities, e.g. CISO, project manager for development projects with security-critical content and/or aspects, as well as employees who want or are expected to fill such roles in the future.

This means that courses in the first two semesters will not be offered in 23/24, but it will still be possible to register as a single subject student on the courses Application Security02G08 Data Protection and Privacy and 02G09 Trends in Cybersecurity is still possible for applicants who meet the admission requirements for the Master of Cybersecurity, i.e. relevant professional bachelor's degree (or equivalent education) and two years of subsequent work experience.

In the menu to the left you can read all about the content and admission criteria of the Master of Cyber Security.
