Master in Information and Communication Technologies, mICT
The Master in Information and Communication Technologies, mICT, is an international Master's program designed for you who work in the ICT industry.
The aim of the program is to give the participants cross-disciplinary qualifications within the key areas related to information and communication technologies. The cross-disciplinary profile addresses the growing need for engineers who can combine knowledge from different areas:
- Internet, Communication and Broadcast Technologies and Converging Media
- Services and Platforms
- Development of User-friendly Applications, Solutions And ServicesBusiness Development and Business Models
- Security, Trust, Privacy; Legal and Ethical Aspects
- Organizational aspects of ICT.
The mICT program is a part-time study. It will be conducted over a period of two years, corresponding to 60 ECTS-points. It is, however, also possible to follow the program over a period of one year or three years.
Through the education three main academic areas are covered:
- ICT Services and Platforms (mICT-ISP)
- Management of ICT Innovations (mICT-MII)
- Cyber and Information Security (mICT-CIS)
In addition, a 'general academic area' is defined, which includes courses of general/methodical nature.
The whole period is divided into three trimesters of eight months; each trimester focuses on one of the main disciplines:
All three specialisations have an interdisciplinary approach combining the above mentioned academic areas. The mICT-ISP specialisation has a more technical focus and provides theories, tools and methods for development of ICT and media services, while the mICT-MII specialisation has a more managerial focus and includes theories, methods and tools for understanding the business processes and service design.
The aim of the specialisation in Cyber and Information Security (CIS) is to give the participants in-depth knowledge about CIS both from the technological and law perspectives. The elements included in the specialisation are amongst others:
- Governance of ICT security, with focus on enterprises
- Trust, Identity and access management
- Economics of privacy
- Personal data and privacy (technology, design, legal rules etc.)
- EU and national IT security and data protection laws regarding cyber-attacks
- Risk management
- Cyber security threats such as destructive malware, fake antiviruses & Denial-of-Service attacks in organisations.
In the final thesis the student can choose to focus on the regulatory and law issues or on the security and privacy issues from a technological point of view.
