An Overview

Security and Technology is an accredited master's program in the field of social sciences, more specifically in international relations, which aims to prepare experts in public policies regarding digitization and international security adapted to the current trend of evolutions in the field of technology. All the program’s graduates will acquire the skills necessary to become a well-documented link between the ICT sector and decision makers from public institution, international organizations or private companies.

At the same time, the master's program is addressed to officials from the central and local public administration, as Romania needs experts at all levels to coordinate the digitization process of public institutions and services. It should be mentioned that at this moment Romania is in the last place in the European Union in terms of digitization, and if it had concentrated since the 1990s on this aspect, now it would have had a higher GDP by up to 2.5%. Despite this fact, the ICT sector contributes to the Romanian GDP with more than 6%.

The program is conducted in English and is aimed at individuals interested in a career in public institutions in Romania and the European Union, in international organizations operating in the fields of digitalization and cyber security, or in the private sector.

-          The master’s program is aimed at university graduates in Bologna (3 years) or long-term university students (4 years or more).

-          The form of education is full-time studies, for 2 years, with 120 ECTS.

In order to prepare students, the master's program offers a wide range of interdisciplinary courses covering areas such as: cyber​security, society and technology, security studies, introduction to computer science, international regulations of cyber space, digital Single Market or theories of international relations.
