Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Cyber Technology

Testing virtual reality

Today’s digital society is based on cyber technology. It’s what we need for online meetings, self-driving cars, the Internet of Things, and all the things that transform the way we live. It also places great demands on the reliability of the internet and the security of our data.

Cyber technology is the study of the hardware, software, services, and connections that make up the internet, among other things. You’ll have the opportunity to dive into the engine of the internet and ensure that new, exciting solutions are created in the future for the benefit of society.

What will you learn?

You’ll be introduced to cyber technology that will enable the Internet of Things and new uses of the internet. In addition, you’ll get a solid foundation in mathematics and physics along with insight into advanced software or hardware development.

You’ll learn how information is processed and transmitted with reliability and cybersecurity in mind. You’ll learn to make technologies work together and make communication happen.This will help you develop the solution-oriented mindset that characterizes an engineer.

DTU is a leader in research in communication network research. That means that during your studies you’ll have a unique opportunity to work with the latest and most advanced technologies.

Degree programme structure

In the first semesters, you’ll learn the basic mathematics and principles of the internet. From the start, you’ll be able to program and apply your knowledge in small projects.

During your bachelor programme, you’ll be able to go in-depth on one or more of the programme’s key topics. For example how huge amounts of data can be transmitted over large distances, how to build data centres, develop advanced apps, or how to design network equipment and collect data for all the new services in future.

Career opportunities

There’s an increasing demand for engineers with a background in cyber technology.

Cyber technology engineers’ expertise in reliable and secure communication makes them sought after by, among others telecommunications companies, device and equipment suppliers, and municipal authorities that specialize in cybersecurity in Denmark and abroad.
