Certificates of Advanced Studies

Die CAS Programme dienen der Vertiefung oder der interdisziplinären Erweiterung der fachlichen Fähigkeiten. Sie richten sich an berufstätige Hochschulabsolventen/innen, die sich beruflich weiterentwickeln oder spezialisieren wollen. Sie umfassen mindestens 10 ECTS-Kreditpunkte und 150 Kontaktstunden und können eine schriftliche Projekt- oder Abschlussarbeit beinhalten. Sie sind in Blockkursen oder wöchentlichen Kurstagen organisiert und dauern zwischen einem und zwei Jahren.

Cyber security can be understood as an umbrella term for a wide range of different topics. Starting with cryptography as a mathematical discipline, ranging over basically all computer science relevant fields, it spans over to psychology (e.g. social engineering) and legal aspects (e.g. privacy) to political aspects like a governmental cyber security policy.

The CAS ETH in Cyber Security follows an interdisciplinary approach and covers technical aspects of cyber security on the one hand, policy or strategic aspects of the topic on the other hand. The programme comprises of three modules designed specifically for the CAS ETH in Cyber Security.

The main goal of the CAS is to introduce the fundamentals of modern information security. Attendees of the programme gain a solid basis to understand today’s challenges and problems associated with cyber security.

Graduates should understand the complexity associated with many problems in cyber security and thus be well prepared to understand the diversity of aspects necessary to take sustainable and rational decisions to address cyber security related challenges.

The duration of the programme is set to one semester. Lectures are planned to be held on the same day of the week, e.g. on Fridays, in order to enable participants to work part-time. Participants should be able to complete the programme within one semester.

The target audience for the course are professionals, not necessarily with a strong background in computer science, working in a position, where they need a basic understanding of technical as well as more policy or strategy related aspects of cyber security.
