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.
Build tomorrow’s hacker-proof computer systems
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 Computer Security.
You might want to join a tech company in which systems and security skills are crucial to carry out innovative projects, or to lead the research and development of new security solutions. 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.
