A combination of technical skills and managerial expertise

In order to guarantee the security of complex IT systems, technical competences in IT infrastructure, security technologies, and software engineering as well as competencies in security management and business administration are required.

Ideal learning environment

Scenario exercises can be conducted by means of highly virtualized IT environments in three laboratories with 20 places each. By means of a VPN solution, students can use the network technology labs even from outside the campus.

IT-SeCXCurrent Issues

Knowledge transfer and networking with the industry are our concerns.

  • IT-SeCX, the night of security experts’ exchange, addresses the community of experts with lectures and discussions.
  • The Security Day offers workshops for pupils.
  • The advisory board’s semi-annual meetings help to ensure the continuous qualitative development of the study programmes IT Security and Information Security.

Research at the Department of Informatics & Security

As IT security is a rapidly developing area information exchange between teaching and research is vital for conveying effective education. Close cooperation with the institute of IT Security Research guarantees the transfer of up-to-date knowledge.
