    The Master’s in Cybersecurity offers a program of a distinctly technical and practical character (clearly different from other Master’s programs in information security focused also on organizational, administrative and legal aspects). A didactic methodology is applied, based on on-site classes, specialized seminars, conferences, case studies, practical sessions in computer labs, tutorials, study and self-learning.

    The curriculum for the Master’s in Cybersecurity offers two tracks of elective courses for two different profiles of graduates, although students can also choose to shape their own electives track:

    • Secure Systems Engineer, oriented to the design and development of components and systems where security plays an important role. Their principal market niche is found in software creation departments (software factories) and architectural design departments.
    • Cybersecurity Analyst, oriented to organizations that need to be protected from cyber threats and require personnel who can identify attacks and vulnerabilities in their systems and networks.
