About the Graduate School in Cybersecurity

To strengthen its strategic research activities, the Department of Information Technology starts a new Graduate School in Cybersecurity that will bring together the domain expertise and strengthen collaboration on cybersecurity-related research and education.

The school will gather a cohort of existing and forthcoming PhD students and their supervisors to create an environment where experts in cybersecurity and related areas work together, through a core PhD-level curriculum of joint courses and research activities. Regular seminars are planned with presentations from the school’s participants and by invited speakers. Active participation in the school activities by all PhD students and their supervisors is a prerequisite.

Existing cybersecurity-related initiatives within the Department, such as undergraduate courses and activities within the Cybersecurity Arena, will be integrated with the Graduate School.

The school is now opening its first call for two new PhD positions in Cybersecurity to all faculty at the Department of Information Technology. The school will cover 50% of the research time of the PhD students over a period of up to 5 years.
