Careers and employability

The SECCLO graduates are well trained for international industrial R&D jobs, security engineering and consulting, various expert roles, and doctoral studies at the partner universities and internationally.

Information security is an essential qualitative requirement for all digital products and services, akin to quality or usability. Our graduates will be able to understand the latest security technologies and research, continuously update their knowledge, and apply it to the development of new cloud and mobile computing solutions.

At the same time, one of the major trends in new ICT products and services – as well as was in other businesses that strive for digitalization – is that services are distributed between cloud computing platforms and heterogeneous computing devices. Their design and implementation requires engineers to master various computing platforms from data centers to mobile devices, communication technologies, connected appliances in the Internet of Things and Industrial Internet, and the security and reliability aspects of distributed systems.

All new services and all new business depend on computation, the mastering of software code and data, and the computation and data are now located in the cloud.

SECCLO directly addresses the education needs in these areas and the career prospects of SECCLO graduates are very good.
