Master's Programme in Security and Mobile Computing (NordSecMob)

NordSecMob - Master's Programme in Security and Mobile Computing, shortly denoted as the NordSecMob MSc study, is a joint study programme offered by the NordSecMob consortium, which is a Nordic and Baltic Academic cooperation within Information Security. The NordSecMob consortium consists of five Nordic universities: Aalto University School of Science and Technology (formerly Helsinki University of Technology, TKK) in Finland, The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Tartu (UT) in Estonia.

This programme is one of the 21 selected Masters Courses by the European Commission Erasmus Mundus programmes in 2005. The programme got its application renewed in 2010. The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. It also provides EU-funded scholarships for third country nationals participating in these Masters Courses, as well as scholarships for EU-nationals studying in third countries.

The NordSecMob-consortium and the development of a joint study programme is also supported by Nordiska Ministerrådet in the framework of joint study programmes.
