PDCS: Top Master in Computer Security

You’ll come away from our Master’s programme with strong research and technical skills in computer security that are much needed by employers everywhere. The industry is chasing talent: well-qualified graduates in this field are in high demand.

Our programme prepares you specifically for research work at commercial or government labs, or for technical leadership positions in the industry. In addition, high-quality PhD candidates are in very short supply at virtually all Computer Science departments in the Netherlands and elsewhere. Students who complete our Master’s programme are ideally suited to pursue a PhD in computer security at many top universities around the world. 

What can you do after your Master's degree?

Move to industry

Different career paths are open to you as a graduate of our Master’s programme .

Alternatively, you might be snapped up by firms looking for the ideal combination of creative problem-solving abilities and technical skills in computer security (or experimental computer science in general).

Or pursue an academic career

Or you may choose to pursue an academic career, going on to obtain a PhD in your area of specialisation at a top university at home or abroad. And last but not least, if you have an entrepreneurial streak, you could choose to start your own company – leveraging your knowhow as well as your network of alumni.
