Hi everyone,

I am a European student who has finished his Engineering degree. I want to do master in Cybersecurity (CS). I have been admitted to 3 universities: CS at Aalborg (Copenhagen, Denmark), CS double degree at the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (eit), and Digital Security at EURECOM (Nice, France).

eit is cross-european master programme where I would do my 1st year in the University of Rennes 1 (France) and my 2nd year would be either in the University of Turku (Finland) or University of Twente (Neatherlands). I have looked at the programme of all 3 institutions and they all interesting and relevant to CS.

However, I am struggling to choose one of them since I am unsure which univeristy will teach the best programme relevant to CS since I am newbie. I would like to ask if anyone knows or has experience with one of these universities and could guide me to know which one would be best. My top deciding factor is the academic programme and connections to industry. Location, etc. are nice too but I want to learn as much as I can to be prepared the best way possible. I look forward to your reply.

    You need to research the market you are trying to break into. Basically; what school have most of the professionals & interns attended at the job you are seeking. There may be a bias in that regard and spending your (or your parent's) hard earned money for a credential that may not garner the respect of the hiring manager or future peers can be discouraging. Are there any promises of placement when you graduate?

    Curriculum at University of Rennes 1 seems to be normal course work for the first year for a Cybersecurity degree. If you are seeking a Policy and Management MSc you will need to make sure the last 2 years are spent on those topics.
