Welcome to SECCLO – Master's Programme in Security and Cloud Computing!
SECCLO is an Erasmus Mundus double degree programme in the field of Computer Science, more specifically, Security and Cloud Computing. The studies offer both practical engineering knowledge and theoretical insights into
- secure systems engineering,
- distributed application development,
- network and service architectures, and
- cloud and mobile platforms
We combine practical engineering skills with a strongly research-based curriculum. This way, we aim to attract special talent and educate game-changing, highly professional engineers to meet both the immediate hiring requirements and the long-term needs of the European ICT industry.
Two years, two universities, two degrees
During the two-year SECCLO studies, students will get a unique experience of studying in two different countries while gaining a broad understanding of the latest and future technologies for secure cloud and mobile computing systems. The programme builds on the success of its predecessor, NordSecMob, which had student intakes 2006-2016.
SECCLO is jointly offered by six European universities:
- Aalto University, Finland
- The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden
- The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway
- Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Denmark
- University of Tartu, Estonia
- EURECOM, France
There is a shortage of professionals in Europe and worldwide who are able to develop products and services for the modern cloud and mobile computing platforms and do this in a secure way.
Innovation and R&D focus
SECCLO differs from most information security programs in that it links security studies with product and service development skills. The ability to innovate and develop new products and services is what has the most potential for creating new business growth.
Two Master of Science degrees from two universities mean wider opportunities for employment. It also means freedom to choose from several second-year specialization options that one university could not offer alone.
