Courses are aimed at a holistic approach to information security, and are paired with insights from industry experts. The curriculum covers many topics, including risk management and cryptosystems, biometrics and ethical hacking. The two-semester project in second year allows you to gain in-depth knowledge and expertise in an information security topic of your choice.
