More information:

The 4TU Cyber Security specialisation is part of the Master’s programme Computer Science. It is a joint Master’s specialisation offered by Delft University of Technology and the University of Twente.

Our society critically depends on cyber space for almost everything, including banking, transport & logistics, air travel, energy, telecommunications, flood defence, healthcare, email, social networks, and even warfare. The consequences of cyber security failures could be disastrous and the demand for cyber security specialists is therefore high and rising.

Cyber security is a multidisciplinary field with computer science at its core. For example, it involves cryptography, formal methods, secure software engineering, and machine learning. It also touches on a broad range of supporting disciplines, such as law, economics, criminology, management, and psychology.

As a student of the 4TU Cyber Security Master’s specialisation, you can enroll in the Computer Science Master at Delft University of Technology or the University of Twente.

Because of the popularity of the Cyber security  programme, the number of students accepted into this special programme is limited. Acceptance depends on the student's previous academic performance and aptitude for cybersecurity. For the  Bioinformatics and Information Architecture special programme enrolment is possible until maximum capacity limited is reached. Students can indicate their interest in a special programme at the start of the programme.
