Study overview

The focus is on the interlocking of content in the areas of data protection, IT security and the fundamentals of information technology. This is where the Bachelor's programme "Data Protection and IT Security" comes in: The aim is to train experts in the areas of technical data protection and IT security, who can be directly deployed in the company and support the legally compliant implementation of the data protection strategy. The focus should be on the constructive development of legally compliant and at the same time economically practicable solutions. Therefore, interdisciplinary trained experts* are necessary, who possess not only the urgently needed technical expertise but also competences for the organisational implementation of the requirements in compliance with the legal framework. Their task will also be to develop solutions together with the respective experts (lawyers, IT specialists, management representatives) and to manage or accompany the implementation. Therefore, a broad education is necessary which guarantees the learning of fundamental aspects as well as especially the technical language of the relevant areas.

 

 

Kurzprofil

The course Data Protection and IT Security (DIS) concludes with a Bachelor of Science degree after seven semesters of standard study time. The course can only begin in the winter semester. Lectures take place mainly on the Ansbach campus. The language of instruction is German. The contact person is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sascha Müller-Feuerstein.

 

Qualification profile

The study concept focuses on the areas of "IT security" and "technical data protection" (e.g. cryptography, cybercrime/security, hacking and system hardening, IT forensics, network security, cloud computing) as well as "organizational and legal data protection" (e.g. compliance management, data protection law, privacy engineering). These key qualifications enable the graduates to understand the numerous interdisciplinary interrelationships, to analyse them, to legally secure them and to identify and close technical security gaps in the IT infrastructure. The study concept is supplemented by basic events from the field of computer science (e.g. programming, algorithms and data structures, IT infrastructure, web development).

 

Career prospects

The career prospects of later graduates* could not be better at the moment. As there is a considerable shortage of qualified specialists in Germany, especially in the IT security and data protection sector, many companies (despite lucrative salary prospects) have great problems filling vacancies. But also in the medium and long term, a continuously high demand for such experts can be assumed throughout Germany and beyond.

 

 

Study structure

The course of studies Data Protection and IT Security is strongly practice-oriented and offers an early opportunity for specialisation in the first three semesters in the fourth and fifth semesters after a basic introduction. In order to optimally prepare the students for their future professional life, the contents of the different lectures are applied directly from the first semester onwards in practice-related group exercises. In the fifth semester, the taught contents are put into practice within the framework of an independent project, usually with an external partner.
Accompanied by the compulsory module "Project Management", the students are prepared in their work for the typical time and financial conditions. After the practical semester (sixth semester), students have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the seventh semester as part of their Bachelor's thesis and a compulsory optional module. In addition, the two modules "Company Auditing" and "Professional Communication" prepare students for their future careers.
