Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the study programme look like?

    The one-year Master’s programme Security and Network Engineering consists of eight courses (all 6 EC) and two research projects. The courses are divided into two focus areas: Networking and Security. You will follow the courses of the two focus areas in parallel. In the morning you will generally follow a theoretical course and carry out related practical assignments in the afternoon. Guest lecturers are often invited to supplement courses and to provide insights into current research. 

  • Can I study this programme in part-time?

    Yes, the Security and Network Engineering programme can be completed part-time, in two years instead of one. Various companies offer the possibility to do so during working hour. As the lectures are taught during working hours two and a half days of full time presence in Amsterdam is required. The part-time programme is demanding and you will need to balance work, study and spare time carefully.
