Best universities for doing masters in Information security(need suggestion)
i am from asia, i am about to complete my UG in Information technology ,as the title says i would like some one to suggest me that
1) what are the best universities for doing masters in information security ?
i expect quality of teaching(the thing i missed very badly in my UG ),
2)is there any institutes offering a specialized degree in software security ?
3)should i go for just information security or try to choose a specialization ?
(currently i am a network related guy).
4)any more advice about doing masters in information security ?
hope ill get some nice suggestions from you guys :)
Hey mandi! Glad to have you back! Um...I don't know what country you're from, so it will be a little hard to recommend a university based on native language. However, I would highly recommend the National University of Singapore:
Singapore (NUS) is one of the highest growing markets for anything IT-related, and is only expected to slow down slightly over the next 4 years. I believe it's a secondary English speaking country.
As for your other questions, only you can truly answer them for yourself. We can all help you debate the pro's and con's of security/networking/telecommunications, but ultimately you are the one that has to decide.
Like I said before, great to have you back mandi. :)
while( !(succeed = try() ) );
Yeah a country would probably make advice better. For instance I know a few good places to go to in the UK for Post Grad infosec courses.
i am from india,i am researching about colleges and universities offering masters in cyber security,and to me i need a quality of teaching,because i missed it very badly in mu UG studies,and i am glad to see you guys here :),
I dont know about the singapore university,do they have a quality of teaching or any review from your friends ?
currently i am doing ccna and rhce ,that is why i couldnt come online,i had found lots of interesting things there,i will make some informative threads here :)
nice to see you m0rph :)
---->tell me about universities in us,canada,australia,uk.
especially uk,because as far as i know the cost of living in uk is quite high and i think there would be taxes for income earned by other country people ?
would like to hear from you :)
Well, if I were you before anything else if you're based in India you need to check what funding you'd be able to get whilst abroad. I know in this country (UK) we get bent over double when it comes to post grad tuition fees. For information security/ethical hacking/cyber security in the UK you've got a couple of good options...
- Royal Holloway (University of London) -
- Lancaster University -
- Abertay (Dundee) University -
- One of the few universities to offer ethical hacking courses in the UK (I know this because I'm studying it at one of the others), currently the only university to offer a degree in 'Ethical Hacking' at masters degree/post graduate level.
Abertay is north of the border (in Scotland) a word of warning, Scotland and England have some very different rules when it comes to finance, admissions and the like so it is worth reading up on these prior to applying.
The cost of living in the UK is as high as you want to make it really, put it this way, I'm studying full-time on a degree course while also looking after my daughter and I'm doing fine cash-wise. I think your main issue is funding really, but that would be down to you to find out about. Contacting universities themselves would be a good idea.
+1 Royal Holloway, I have heard good things. Haven't heard good things about abertay however.
---> thanks for the list,like xin said that "royal holloway" looks good,but currently the cost is the only thing worrying me.
Yeah in the UK, finance is going to be your main problem as tuition fees were raised. I wouldn't know where to start for what international students are able to claim for in the UK.
