Six European universities offer an Erasmus Mundus joint double degree Master's programme in Security and Cloud Computing (SECCLO), giving you a broad understanding of technologies for mobile and cloud computing, and providing you with the skills to design, build, and evaluate secure computing systems as a computer science professional.
The programme gives you a broad understanding of technologies for mobile and cloud computing, and provides you with the skills to design, build, and evaluate secure computing systems as a computer science professional.
During your two years of study, you will study the first year at Aalto University, then specialize at one of the five partner universities. Upon graduation, the student will be awarded a double degree diploma, i.e. a diploma from each university, at which you study.
- Communications Systems Design - The Royal Insitute of Techonlogy (KTH), Sweden
- Information Security - Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
- Reliable Distributed Systems - Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
- Cryptography- University of Tartu (UT), Estonia
- Big Data Security - EURECOM, France
Find more information on the specializations, curricula and scholarships on the SECCLO programme website.
Check out the recorded admission webinars from November 2022. The webinars covered basic information on SECCLO and all information required for applying for the 2023 student intake.
Specialization in Reliable Distributed Systems at DTU
At DTU, you will learn to design and analyze secure and reliable computer systems including embedded, cloud and software-intensive systems and services. Students work on protecting computer systems with vital functions, from controlling critical infrastructure to providing public services over the web, against threats from vandals, criminals, industrial espionage and cyber-terrorism.
You will learn to design embedded and distributed cloud-based systems, and to provide essential and secure functionality under a range of competing constraints: low computational resources, high availability, reliable communication, and adequate security.
The DTU specialization also covers proactive methods and techniques for engineering the safe and secure software-intensive services typically found in cloud-based systems. The courses provide the formal underpinnings for developing these kind of systems, together with elective courses that allow the students to explore the wider context.
