Master's Degree Programme, 2 years, Gjøvik

Information Security

– Programme components

The program has three tracks (paths of study):

  • Cyber and Information Security Technology
  • Information Security Management
  • Digital forensics

The first of these three tracks focuses on the technological aspects in general within Information Security, while the second focuses on the management aspects. The third track is a more specialized track to educate future digital forensic experts.

The common courses in the first semester cover the core topics in both information security technology, forensics and management. In the rest of the study program, each track has a set of specific courses. Elective courses, taken in the 3rd semester, are freely chosen from a common pool of electives. The students have to choose their master thesis topics within their chosen tracks.
