The Master's programme Security and Network Engineering (SNE, formerly System and Network Engineering) is a time intensive one year programme at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). It allows students to specialise in Security and Network Engineering on a more theoretical level. With security as a focal point in the programme for the last thirteen years, it prepares students for realistic situations outside of academics.
Students and lecturers from Security and Network Engineering tell you during our Online Open Day Event what to expect from this programme and discuss career opportunities once you have graduated.
The study programme
Security and Network Engineering is the only academic Master's programme in The Netherlands that focuses on understanding, developing and maintaining complex IT systems and networks. It raises questions like: How do you apply different software components within a complex architecture, to end up with an efficiently working system?
In a world that increasingly uses and depends on the technical ICT infrastructure, and where (cyber)security is an rising issue, security and network engineers are indispensable in the efficient and effective functioning and innovation of this infrastructure. Their expertise in technical details and understanding of the goals and needs of organisations and society ensure the correct management of the infrastructure.
