Have you ever wanted to understand how a hacker works and how to counter their attacks through reverse malware engineering? Are you interested in ethical hacking and helping organizations throughout the sector find their weak spots through penetration testing (system, web, and network)? Do you want to help fight cybercrime by conducting a forensic analysis? Is your life’s goal to strengthen industrial security by learning about Industrial Control Systems Security (OT)? Or do you want to understand cryptography and how it can be used to protect or attack (ransomware)? All of this and more is offered in the Cyber Security programme.
As a pioneer in offering instruction in ground-breaking technologies, Howest was one of the first to respond to the lack of industry-ready, practice-oriented cyber security professionals by offering this bachelor program. Innovative subjects like Cyber Warfare and security in 5G, Blockchain, and AI are included.
You will also learn the basics of hardware and desktop operating systems, networks and software development including Secure Development and much more. We do not require prior knowledge or experience with IT (security) though an affinity for working with computers is a benefit.
