Help trying to choose university to study cybersecurity

By cadenabaldovin ·
Hi everyone,

I am a European student who has finished his Engineering degree. I want to do master in Cybersecurity (CS). I have been admitted to 3 universities: CS at Aalborg (Copenhagen, Denmark), CS double degree at the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (eit), and Digital Security at EURECOM (Nice, France).

eit is cross-european master programme where I would do my 1st year in the University of Rennes 1 (France) and my 2nd year would be either in the University of Turku (Finland) or University of Twente (Neatherlands). I have looked at the programme of all 3 institutions and they all interesting and relevant to CS.

However, I am struggling to choose one of them since I am unsure which univeristy will teach the best programme relevant to CS since I am newbie. I would like to ask if anyone knows or has experience with one of these universities and could guide me to know which one would be best. My top deciding factor is the academic programme and connections to industry. Location, etc. are nice too but I want to learn as much as I can to be prepared the best way possible. I look forward to your reply.

One you call out "best" then you have to define what that is.

As to the connections to the industry, that's for you to call each school and talk to their counselors. Just like any business they have to sell you their product.

Thanks a lot for your reply. For me "best" means best academic programme and connections to industry. I have looked at all programmes and they all look relevant and interesting. But since I'm a newbie, I don't know if maybe there's one programme that stands out from the rest and is more reknowned within the cybersecurity community.

Call and talk to them about the connections to the industry. Education here and most places is a BUSINESS and must sell you their PRODUCT. I know that folk don't get this concept for many years but now is the time for you to learn this.

Make those calls.
