EPFL and ETH Zurich introduce a joint Master’s degree in Cyber Security
The two technical universities have teamed up to offer a new Master’s program that will train cyber security engineers. The program will kick off in the 2019–20 school year.
As our society becomes increasingly connected, cyber threats – whether in the form of stolen data, attacks on key infrastructure or large-scale hacking – represent a growing risk. To help address this critical issue and promote the training of IT security specialists and research in the area of cyber security, EPFL and ETH Zurich, with the support of the Swiss government, are teaming up to offer a new joint Master’s degree in Cyber Security starting in the 2019-20 school year.
“Switzerland has been long recognized for its strengths in terms of reliability and trust. We have an outstanding education system, with two federal institutes of technology, ETH Zurich and EPFL, which are among the best in the world. Our universities and institutes of higher education are also at the forefront in many domains. It is in the light of these attributes that Switzerland can, and must, play a leading role in cyber security”, says Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin, Head of the Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research.
