In the first year, students obtain the foundational theoretical knowledge they need to become cybersecurity professionals. The programme builds the mathematical foundation upon which students will develop understanding of programming, computer networks and enterprise information systems during following years.
Combinatorics & Graphs
Foundations of programming
Foundations of mathematical logic
Data structures and algorithms
Combinatorics and graphs – 2
Calculus – 2
Data structures and algorithms – 2
Linear algebra – 2
Computer Organisation and Systems
Calculus – 3
In the second year, students complete courses in programming, scripting, machine learning, databases, and continue to study security of operating systems and networks. The second year also offers fundamental courses in cryptography and principles of secure programming. Most courses require practical coursework and a course project enabling students to get a feel for the challenges and approaches used in this field.
Introduction to Statistics
Parallel and Distributed Computing - 1
Introduction to Cyber Security
Machine learning – 1
Introduction to Computer Networking
Database Systems Principles
introduction to Cryptography
During the third year, students will focus on a variety of cybersecurity topics including advanced network management, operating system security, policy analysis and implementation, vulnerability analysis, and legal environment. The courses are taught by researchers and professionals who practice the material they teach either academically or professionally. The goal of the final year is to expose students to a range of real-world security challenges and mitigation strategies and to ensure a seamless transition into professional roles.

Our goal is to reshape education in order to lay the foundation for a better future. Here is how we do it at our University.
The number of hours students will spend in class every day. The rest of the time is theirs to study, work on projects, or interact with their peers and teachers. Students have the freedom and flexibility to adapt their time to their needs.
The lifespan of each Module or class. Students will take one class at a time for three weeks, allowing them to focus intensively on the subject matter. This allows for every student to get the most out of every class.
The amount of contact hours students get with their teachers each module. Our teachers make commitments to come and teach a class for three weeks and make themselves fully available to help their students understand classwork, work through projects, or help students with their Capstone Projects for graduation.

- Our admission process is a holistic review of each student’s preparedness level for higher studies and potential for a successful career.
- While we are highly selective we do not base the decision on the review of the grades and transcripts alone. We believe that grades and standardised test results are sometimes not fully indicative of a student’s ability to work on a project and to innovate. We consider the overall certificates, transcript, motivation and recommendation letters as well as awards, achievements and extracurricular activities. One of the crucial parts of the student’s application is the project proposal.
- All our technical degree programmes (Computer Science, Data Science and Cyber Security) require a strong foundational knowledge of mathematics. If your Maths level is not sufficient, you may first join an intensive, one year preparatory Math as a Second Language (MSL) course.
