Cyber Security

In a world of growing digitalization and interconnectedness in all areas of life—a trend that continues unabated and with no end in sight—it becomes increasingly necessary to protect private persons, companies and critical infrastructures from inadequately secured or manipulated computer systems. To minimize the potential risks of increasingly complex digital infrastructures, the Cyber Security degree program gives students the necessary knowledge to train experts in this field.

This degree program focuses on both research and practical application. Besides providing students with broad basic knowledge in mathematics and IT topics, this degree program offers manifold opportunities for students to deepen their knowledge in the field of cyber security as well as in classic IT. For example, they can expand their knowledge of areas such as malware analysis, identity theft, the human factor in IT security, password security or the technical possibilities in repelling and recognizing cyber attacks.

The technical side of this degree program is supplemented by courses in psychology and law, so that students can better understand what drives hackers to do what they do and so they adhere to the legal framework surrounding the IT field.

 

Possible lines of work:

IT security consulting (setting up corporate information security management systems or evaluating existing security strategies); IT security analysis (examining critical infrastructure—e.g. at a hospital—to identify inadequately secure components; providing training or carrying out sensitization measures), IT security expert in a CERT (analysis and evaluation of IT security incidents as well as coordination of response measures) academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (CEFR level C1)


At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
