Master of Science and PhD in Information Security program at CASE is in line with the hi-tech industry and modern information security requirements. Our society’s increasing involvement in information processing calls for a persistent development in the information security practices to protect against the challenges of modern age. The program focuses primarily on the technical and problem-solving skills associated with security implementation. It prepares students to make an immediate contribution to the workplace and become leaders in the industry.
Currently, the following area of specialization is being offered in Information Security:
Each student of information security has to select courses from this Area of Specialization (AOS). The courses of the remaining AOS of the ECE Department (including AOS of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and software engineering) will then become areas for Additional Graduate Hours (AGH). Student opting for any AOS also has a recommended list of AGH courses specified. However, students can also choose other courses too according to their interest in consultation with the academic advisors. A student has to select one Minor area and complete the entire Minor course work requirement from that area.
