The Master's programme Security and Network Engineering (SNE, formerly System and Network Engineering) is a time intensive one year programme at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). It allows students to specialise in Security and Network Engineering on a more theoretical level. With security as a focal point in the programme for the last thirteen years, it prepares students for realistic situations outside of academics.
This year, you won't be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our Online Open Day is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home. Every study programme has an Online Open Day page with videos, FAQs and live events.

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.Cosmin Dumitru, student Security and Network Engineering
In a world that increasingly uses and depends on the technical ICT infrastructure, and where (cyber)security is an rising issue, security and network engineers are indispensable in the efficient and effective functioning and innovation of this infrastructure. Their expertise in technical details and understanding of the goals and needs of organisations and society ensure the correct management of the infrastructure.
