    • Why a joint study programme in data security and mobile computing?
      • Nordic countries have been very innovative in mobile communication.
        • The first regional cellular network started there giving the telecom industry a very good starting point to the second and third generation networks and devices
        • They were pioneers in large scale internet-usage in Europe.
        • The biggest on-line banking system in the world has covered the area of Scandinavia ten years.
        • A broadband Internet-connection is assumed as a public service.
      • The requirements for mobile computing and security has created an industrial and scientific cluster in Nordic countries.
        • The participating universities are leading part of this cluster in their own countries in the scientific side.
      • The field of data security is too large area to be covered totally in one university.
      • A joint curriculum is defined which involves always two universities
      • The 120 ECTS credit points will be divided into two blocks:
        • 1-2 semesters of teaching (30-60 ECTS) will be provided by home university
        • 1-2 semesters of teaching (30-60 ECTS) will be provided by host university.
      • The programme includes three semesters of courses + a fourth research semester (Master’s thesis, 30 ECTS)
      • All students will graduate with M.Sc degree or equivalent from their home university and a M.Sc degree or equivalent from their host university.
      • All partners are able to provide double degree.
      Structure of studies and degrees
      • Contents of scientific tracks
      • The student takes courses focusing on advanced topics on the selected area of scientific tracks:
        • TKK: Technical Information Security and Network services
        • KTH: Communications Systems Design
        • NTNU: Information Security
        • DTU: Software Security
        • Tartu: Mathematical foundations of Cryptography
      • Mobility arrangements
      • The students must specify at the time of application, which track they wish to follow.
        • The first autumn term studies are taken at one of the three home universities: TKK, KTH and NTNU.
        • Students with the specialization “Software Security” move from home university to DTU for the first spring semester and stay second year at DTU.
        • Students with other specialization tracks move after first year studies to host universities (TKK, NTNU, KTH and Tartu) for the second autumn semester.
    • TKK KTH NTNU 1 st semester KTH TKK DTU NTNU 2 nd semester TKK DTU KTH NTNU Tartu 3 rd semester DTU TKK KTH NTNU Tartu 4 th semester
