Overview

Sensitive and confidential information, such as credit card numbers and medical records, is sent between computers around the world. How can we ensure that this information only reaches those it is meant for?

To become an expert in IT security, particularly network security, a series of competencies are required. You have to be good at handling a computer, of course, and at understanding how the different parts of a computer system interact. In particular, you also need to be able to program computers.

Computer science includes a number of other areas as well, such as operating systems and databases. You will, however, primarily focus on the network and security areas. This means that you will study courses such as administration of networks, mobile and wireless security, and distributed systems. In order to achieve IT security, encryption is required and to help you understand such tools, courses in mathematics are also included.

Career

The Network Security programme offered at Linnaeus University  gives you qualifications for a variety of professions. Examples of jobs that this education may lead to are programmer, network administrator and security consultant, in small as well as large companies. The IT world is global, so work abroad may be just as likely as work in Sweden.
