Machine Learning and Cybersecurity for Internet-Connected Systems (MERIT)

The official Master’s degree in Machine Learning and Cybersecurity for Internet-Connected Systems aims to provide advanced and specialised scientific and technological training in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, with an emphasis on their application in internet-connected systems, including computer systems of multiple degrees of complexity in general and Internet of Things systems in particular. It addresses the current shortage of professionals who have this kind of training, which is highly valued in industry and research in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Graduates will be able to successfully apply for jobs as machine learning engineers, data scientists, information system governance professionals, and many others. The master’s program is mainly practical and focused on both application and theoretical foundation. Contrary to more specialized programs, this master’s degree offers a broader training in three interrelated and complementary areas that are essential in today’s ICT.
