The one-year Master’s programme Security and Network Engineering consists of eight courses (all 6 EC) and two research projects. The courses are divided into two focus areas: Networking and Security. You will follow the courses of the two focus areas in parallel. In the morning you will generally follow a theoretical course and carry out related practical assignments in the afternoon. Guest lecturers are often invited to supplement courses and to provide insights into current research.
The entry requirements and the application procedure for this Master’s programme depends on whether you have completed your prior education in the Netherlands or abroad.
Yes, the Security and Network Engineering programme can be completed part-time, in two years instead of one. Various companies offer the possibility to do so during working hour. As the lectures are taught during working hours two and a half days of full time presence in Amsterdam is required. The part-time programme is demanding and you will need to balance work, study and spare time carefully.
The application process and the deadline depend on whether you have completed your prior education in the Netherlands or abroad. We strongly recommend to start the application procedure at least a week before the deadline. Getting all your documents ready and going through the process will take several days.
