What is the Master’s Degree in Cybersecurity?

In an environment of continuous digital transformation, dominated by an increasing number of cybersecurity attacks and toughening regulations related to privacy and data protection, the demand for engineers with a good training in cybersecurity is huge and in constant growth.

The Master´s Degree in Cybersecurity at ICAI responds to the real needs of the different sectors where security is one of the fundamental pillars of the business, in a scenario where cybersecurity directly impacts any sector of activity, size and type of organization, and even on a personal level. This program has been created at the request of the collaborating companies to cover the needs in all security aspects that each sector finds most relevant. It is a Master's Degree with a mainly face-to-face in-person format for class attendance, with the participation of ICAI's own faculty and the best security specialists from all business sectors, public administration, and state security forces.

This program allows you to apply for paid internships at leading companies; this helps to finance the Master's Degree and guarantees the good quality of the Master's thesis, which will have an important component of real application. This program also provides the basic knowledge to qualify for certifications in different areas of security.

Hands-on training, in collaboration with relevant companies

Not only it is suitable for undergraduate students who wish to complete their training in cybersecurity, but also, given its prominent practical orientation, is suitable for the continuing education of professionals who already work in different fields of engineering and want or need to become specialists in cybersecurity.
