EIT Digital Master in Cyber Security

EURECOM is part of the high profile EIT Digital Master in Cyber Security (CES)


Cyber Security focuses on the study of the design, development and evaluation of secure computer systems, which are also capable of ensuring privacy for future ICT systems.

Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe. Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.

The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.

In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme. The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
