The Master program confers the degree of Master of Science in Information Security (Mestre em Segurança Informática) from the Department of Informatics of the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon  (FCUL- Departamento de Informática da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa).

This is a 2nd cycle Bologna Degree automatically accredited at European level. As it is a demanding and specialized program, the MSI is also adequate to holders of pre-Bologna 4-5 year degrees and generalist 2nd cycle.

In the MSI you will learn the principles and techniques that will give you and your company a competitive edge on security and dependability of critical infrastructures. The program combines safety and dependability on the one hand, and information and infrastructure on the other, mastering a symbiosis between policy/assurance/lawand architecture/protocols/technology. This model is novel even in the international context.

The program provides a solid theoretical basis combined with intensive laboratory work. This way, we aim at creating a new culture: learning how to think and how to do security and dependability.
