The programme has the following tracks for 2017:
  • Cryptography and Data Security
  • Networked Systems Security
Students of the Cryptography and Data Security track graduate with Master of Science degree (MSc), in Finnish filosofian maisteri or FM. Students of the Networked Systems Security track graduate with the Master of Science in Technology degree (MSc(Tech.), in Finnish diplomi-insinööri or DI).
The Cryptography and Data Security major subject educates future experts of the field that have strong and broad knowledge on mathematical aspects of cryptography and data security. The students learn to assess the strengths and weaknesses of cryptographic solutions based on a deep understanding of the underlying theory. Applicants to this major subject must have their previous studies in mathematics or a mathematics related field.

The Networked Systems Security major subject gives its students profound and substantial education and expertise in the networked systems security and technology field. The graduates of this major subject will benefit from the strong technological, theoretical and practical understanding and skills they have obtained in the programme upon building a successful career in securing the information and communication technology industry. For applicants to this major subject, relevant fields of previous studies include communication and network systems, software engineering, computer science, computer technology and information technology.

This programme co-operates closely with the GITM Master's Degree Programme in the Turku School of Economics, resulting in an opportunity for the students of this programme to study information security courses also from the information systems and security management perspective.
