Rohkem infot



The programme provides students with core skills in wide aspects of the security of information systems and specialised skills in the chosen specialisation. Students get a unique chance to study under high-level Cybersecurity practitioners from Estonian universities, industry, law enforcement, CERT and the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence.


The programme is taught jointly by the two largest public universities in Estonia – TalTech and the University of Tartu. The Cyber Security and Digital Forensics studies are concentrated in Tallinn, while the specialisation in Cryptography is concentrated in Tartu, a city in South Estonia. Note that at least 24ECTS worth of subjects must be taken in both universities. Upon successful completion of the programme students will receive a joint degree signed by both universities.


  • General studies – provide the student with the opportunity to learn more about information technology, entrepreneurship and/or Estonian language and culture.
  • Core studies – give the student the core cyber security knowledge on management, technology, as well as human and legal aspects.
  • Special studies – students will study Cybersecurity, Digital Forensics and Cryptography with the option to choose specialist courses in these subjects.
  • Free choice courses – this module aims to let the students choose to study topics according to their interests and/or specialisation.
  • Graduation thesis – a scientific project that allows to apply theoretical knowledge to solving practical problems in the field of IT and Cybersecurity.


The programme conveys the specialist knowledge and professional skills needed on a career path leading to high-end technical roles (e.g. security analyst, architect or research engineer; security incident handler or a digital forensic expert in a law enforcement agency) or managerial roles (e.g. project/team leader or technology officer).

The studies are also an excellent addition to a previous background in legal studies or law enforcement, leading to unique career opportunities. Great networking possibilities and collaboration with leading specialists in the field will present graduates with a range of career opportunities. The studies can also be continued at doctoral level. The direct follow-up curriculum at TalTech is Information and Communication Technology (IAQD) PhD progarmme.
