The following courses are offered in the framework of the Security and Privacy Master School of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT Digital) in Trento.
Since 2017/2018 they are available as possible curriculum in the Master degree in Computer Science.
The first year of the EIT ICT Labs Master in S&P starts with two entry points (University of Twente and the University of Trento) with introductory courses on Network Security, System and Software Security, Security Management, Cryptography and Privacy. The program also offers courses in Innovation and Enterpreneurship (I&E).
The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business and management. The Business Development Lab includes abilities to understand market survey, a business model generation process (based on business canvas), and a venture development exercise. The ICT Innovation Course is a project course (based on the concept of research canvas) where the students start with a research/technology idea and develop all steps needed to make it a product. A number of activities on ICT Innovation takes place at the ICT Labs Trento's Co-Location Center.
The S&P major offers 6 specialisations, each at a different location (ELTE University, TU Berlin, TU Darmastadt, University of Saarland, University of Trento, University of Twente). Students participating in the S&P track are offered an internship in a partner industry or research centre of the EIT ICT Labs to work on a thesis project. Directly linked to the master thesis, there are an I&E minor thesis that specifies the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected thesis project.
Trento's specialisation is on applied security and focuses on the challenge of guaranteeing the right level of security to an application that is substantiated by empirical evidence. Our graduates should be able to
