Why a Career in IT Security?
With the rapidly advancing digitalization of all areas of life, IT security is increasingly becoming a central prerequisite for the self-determination of private individuals, companies and states. If you want to help protect private and public data, self-driving cars or public infrastructure from cybercriminal attacks – essentially: if you’re looking to help save the world – then you have come to the right place.
Excellent and diversified: Career and job prospects in IT security
The career prospects of the graduates are excellent and broadly diversified: from the development of cryptographic procedures for electronic cards to the management of the security departments of large companies to work in the growing field of IT security consulting. They are also sought after by governmental entities, such as the Federal Office for Information Security or intelligence agencies. Our degrees are also excellent preparation for engaging in further research at a university or in industry.
The broad approach of our study courses prepares students exceptionally well for a number of career paths outside of IT security too. We are particularly distinguished through the way we connect computer science and engineering – a combination that is in high demand in the IT industry. Our graduates are consequently very well prepared for careers in the mobile phone industry and in telecommunications or software companies.
