'A lot of the subjects we offer during the research projects are linked to the expertise of our research group. These include distributed systems, cloud computing or applications fields like digital cinema. But we also deliberately offer subjects that we are not specialized in, but do feel are interesting in a broader perspective.'
Dr. Karst Koymans
'On a scale from very abstract to very concrete, Security and Network Engineering is right in the middle. We need abstraction to understand matters on a higher level, but we never loose sight of the practical applications. During this programme, you are constantly translating theory into practice and vice versa.'
The research projects within the Master's programme in Security and Network Engineering are guided by the top-notch System and Network Engineering research group.
The Master's programme also has close ties with the Netherlands Forensics Institute (NFI).
'I wasn't really planning on going abroad for my Master's, but this programme fit my profile so well that I decided to come to Amsterdam. The practical character of this Master's programme really appealed to me. Most Master's in this field are quite theoretical, with lots of papers and not a lot of action.'
