Information technology is crucial for many areas of life as well as for diverse industries such as health, mobility, entertainment, manufacturing, logistics and finance.
Development in these areas has always and continues to depend on sustainably maintaining the security of IT systems. IT security prevents potentially enormous economic damage that can be caused by hacker attacks or economic espionage, and even harm to life and limb through manipulated or unreliable embedded systems.
Students enrolled in the M.Sc. program for IT Security at TU Darmstadt acquire comprehensive knowledge in the areas of cryptography, system security and software security along with the classic areas of Computer Science.
The career opportunities that exist for graduates of the Master's degree program for IT Security are excellent.
