Description of the programme
The increasing digitalisation and networking of all areas of life regularly produces new technologies and solutions. These have many positive sides for the performance of the economy and the organisation of everyday life. That is why there is no way around it for most companies and institutions. Digital transformation is the name given to this process, which also places ever greater demands on IT security. Cyber security ensures the trouble-free functioning of networked IT systems. Unauthorised access can bring entire networks to a standstill. Whether production facilities, energy supply or networked everyday objects, cyber crime can cause huge damage. Data security is another major challenge. Data stocks are constantly growing. Their targeted use for various analyses brings valuable insights and economic benefits for individual companies. The protection of sensitive data is therefore another major topic of this specialisation.
This specialisation is suitable for all interested parties with:
– Curiosity, interest and commitment to the subject area of cyber security;
– Interest in computer science, business and the English language;
– Enjoyment of challenges and solving complex tasks;
– Interest in developing their own communication skills.
Why enrolling in this programme?
Combination of theory and practice gives you a head start in your career
In the dual bachelor's programme at the FHDW, students alternate between university and company on a quarterly basis. During their studies, both sides can ‘get to know each other’ and see if they harmonise. This lays the foundation for successful co-operation at an early stage.
The part-time bachelor's and master's programme combine a full-time job with the study programme. This means that the study content can be used directly at the workplace and it is not necessary to leave the job.
Small groups promote personal contacts
Studying at the FHDW means: no overcrowded lecture halls and no impersonal meetings. The FHDW knows its students. The study groups are only ever as large as a class: a maximum of 36 students.
Perfect organisation saves time
Students do not have to worry about the sequence and organisation of their studies. The study programmes at the FHDW are perfectly organised and coordinated. The part-time bachelor's programmes take into account the NRW school holidays.
Accreditations & awards
FHDW is ‘Top Digital Education Provider’
The market research institute ServiceValue examined the user satisfaction of digital education providers for the magazine Wirtschaftswoche. The FHDW received a grade of 2.50—only 0.08 grade points behind the first-place finisher in the business school category. For this, the FHDW was awarded the ‘Top Digital Education Provider’ seal in November 2020.
In various categories, users of 115 providers gave school grades for the quality of the education provided online. A total of 10,750 evaluations were collected.
Institutional accreditation by the German Science Council
As the most important advisory body for science policy in Germany, the Science Council confirmed in 2008 that the FHDW, as a private university, provides teaching and research according to recognised scientific standards and has the necessary material, personnel and financial resources. Most recently, the FHDW was re-accredited for another five years in 2019, once again confirming that it meets the high quality requirements.
System accreditation according to the Accreditation Council by FIBAA
In system accreditation, the quality assurance system of a higher education institution is examined to determine whether it functions in such a way that the higher education institution can guarantee the quality of its study programmes.
