Education

Bachelor in Telematics

The study program is taught at the Norwegian Defence Cyber Academy (FIH). The study program is taught in Norwegian.

The study program educates those who is sometimes referred to as the military’s “cyber warriors”.

COINS Research School of Computer and Information Security

The Research School “COINS Research School of Computer and Information Security” is led by CCIS/NISlab. Participants in the research school include NTNU, University of Oslo, University of Bergen, University of Agder, University of Stavanger, and University of Tromsø.

COINS integrates Norwegian research groups in Information Security to a larger entity by integrating the course portfolio for research school members, build stronger relationships between doctoral students in the network, establish more incentives to excel and increase student mobility through access to a larger network. COINS also increases Norway’s international student mobility, hosts internationally recognised researchers, and offers “free flow of goods and services” in Information Security Research in Norway. COINS expects to recruit 40 students at any given moment.

PhD in Computer Science

Within the Ph.D. in Computer Science, several specialisation areas are available, and candidates may elect to have such specialisation areas highlighted explicitly as part of a Diploma Supplement. The specialisation areas include Information Security where candidates elect not to take the degree in Information Security outright.

Each specialisation area is generally aligned with one or more research groups investigating related areas including in explicit laboratories.

Experience-Based Master of Science in Information Security / Digital Forensics & Cybercrime Investigations

Information technology permeates all aspects of society and has become critical to industry, government, and individual well-being. Securing the vital services and structures and ensuring availability of trustworthy information whenever and wherever it is required has become a field of intensive interdisciplinary research, development and application in the recent years.

At the same time, information security has become an area of extensive commercial activity with thousands of companies developing and marketing various services and products for information and communication technology (ICT), e.g. computer systems, communication networks, and software applications. The experience-based master in information security provides the students with complex skills within a specific area of specialization, as well as the theoretical background and attitudes necessary to succeed in this challenging yet eminently rewarding application domain.

The program has at this moment one path of study:

  • Digital Forensics & Cybercrime Investigation

The program is fully taught in English.
