Communication Networks and Systems SecuritySubmit Application Form

The telecommunications and digital communications environment is under radical change, experiencing a continuous expansion of fiber-optic telecommunication networks as well as future 5G networks supporting new services such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and real time communication applications requiring mobile broadband connectivity like automotive apps, online gaming, personal cloud services, remote health services and so on.

Also, reliability and security of the above systems is essential for the acceptance of these systems by users and the market. The frequency and impact of security breaches require effective prevention and response.

Following these developments, the Department of Computer Science Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) will offer from the academic year 2018-19 a Postgraduate Studies program entitled “Communication Networks and Systems Security”. The aim of the programme is to provide the opportunity for students/professionals to acquire and enhance in depth knowledge and skills in response to the new challenges in the fields of Communication Networks and Systems Security in the following areas:

  • Core networks
  • Access networks, wireless and optical
  • Cloud technologies
  • Future Internet
  • Photonic technology
  • New generation of components and systems
  • Cryptography
  • Wireless and Optical Network Security
  • Internet security
  • Security and privacy of information and systems

The program leads to a Postgraduate Diploma of 90 ECTS. The duration of the programme is 3 semesters minimum, for full-time students including the time for the Master Thesis. Part-time attendance is foreseen for employee students for a total duration up to 6 semesters.
