Program description

Bachelor of Applied Computer Science - Major Cybersecurity

In this bachelor major you study the specific problems in the field of security and learn how to arm yourself against them. As a Cyber Security specialist you will be trained in the very latest technologies and techniques in the field of cyber security, cyber crime and cyber warfare. The Cyber Security specialist provides more security and privacy in the digital world.

As a pioneer in offering education for ground-breaking new technologies, Howest was one of the first to respond to the lack of industry-ready, practice-oriented Cyber Security Professionals by offering this bachelor program. Innovative subjects like Cyber Warfare and security in 5G, Blockchain, and AI are included. 

Of course, you will also learn the basics of hardware and desktop operating systems, networks and software development including Secure Development and much more. This implies that we do not require prior knowledge or experience with IT (security) though an affinity for working with computers is, of course, a benefit.

Admission requirements

  • A certified/legalised and translated copy of your (high school) diploma 
  • Proof of English language proficiency (minimum CEF B2 level)
