My Studies


To graduate from the degree programme, you must:

  • successfully complete all the classes
  • produce and present a Master’s thesis
  • pass the Master’s examination

Your title on graduation will be “Master of Science in Engineering (MSc)”.

Master’s thesis

In the Master’s thesis students examine a current topic relating to IT and mobile security which must be approved in advance by the head of degree programme. The thesis must be an academic piece of work, written independently by the student. Students are given individual support by supervisors from the degree programme. It is also possible to write the Master’s thesis in cooperation with a company. This often opens the door to later employment.

In their Master’s thesis students demonstrate their ability to produce an independent scientific piece of work on a subject relevant to the programme, providing evidence of the success of their academic training. The thesis reflects the competencies in scientific methodology gained on the programme.

Master’s examination

The Master’s examination demonstrates whether the students have gained the competencies relevant to their professional field. The examination is taken before an examining board consisting of academics in the field, and is open to the public.

Master’s examinations are held three times a year:

  • First date in July
  • Main date in October
  • Later date in January of the following year

After graduation

Our graduates are highly qualified for current and future occupations in the fields of IT security and mobile security. They analyse, model and implement secure systems. Graduates are then also qualified to join doctoral programmes run at many universities, such as Graz University of Technology.
