SecSci: Security Science Courses

As computation and information are spreading through ever wider networks, supporting ever more complex and more important applications, security is becoming a central problem of Information and Computer Sciences. The tasks of protecting security and privacy also offer an increasing range of employment and business opportunities for the ICS graduates. The BA and BSci in ICS with the focus area of Security Science (SecSci) provides the technical capabilities and the conceptual background needed for entry into this exciting and expanding area.

Although computation begins with programming, modern applications often involve physical and social interactions that cannot be programmed or engineered. The processes of security, privacy, and trust therefore offer a glimpse beyond the engineering aspects of computation, and into Computer Science as a genuine science.
