Admission requirements
  • A Bachelor's degree from a German university or an equivalent qualification from a foreign university in cybersecurity, computer science or a related field
  • Proof of advanced proficiency in English (typically level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
  • Supporting documents demonstrating the applicant's particular interest in the subject

The applicant's suitability for the programme will be determined either by the presentation of satisfactory academic references or by means of an oral interview conducted by two examiners from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate a level of knowledge and competence that corresponds to that acquired in the Bachelor's degree programmes in cybersecurity and computer science taught at Saarland University. Specifically, this requires applicants to show that they have the necessary level of expertise in the following areas:

  1. Mathematics and theoretical informatics (discrete mathematics, analysis, linear algebra, numerical methods, stochastic processes, formal methods, formal logic, computability, complexity)
  2. Applied informatics and cybersecurity (programming, data structures and algorithms, software development methodologies, data protection, cryptography, security)

The criteria listed above will be used to assess the suitability of the applicant in terms of the academic profile and requirements of the Master's degree programme in Entrepreneurial Cybersecurity.
