Program description

Information Management and Multimedia: Data Science, Protection and Security

Are you passionate about the newest digital tools that help make organisations more intelligent? Do you want to learn how to filter valuable information from a mass of data, how to make this information accessible by visualising it, and how to secure this data efficiently and with purpose? Enter the options Cyber Security Expert or Datamanager!

  • Netflix knows you better than your own sweetheart those and always offers you the perfect movie. And Trivago knows, even before you have clicked anything, that you are planning a city trip to Dublin. Data is big business. We teach you how to make companies and organisations more intelligent through data. How to disclose raw data and how to make it accessible. And how companies can use this to further develop their business.
  • You never cease to be interested by the newest IT-technologies. As such, you are also aware that technology has its weak sides and that hackers can take advantage of those. Phishing, hacking, ransomware, … Making sure that data and information don’t end up in the wrong hands is a hot issue. You want to know more about security techniques and how to apply them with focus.
  • You are attracted by company life. The processes, strategies and structures in a company fascinate you. The program combines the best of both worlds: business and technology. The accent is put on better and more efficient data management in a business environment, through the use of informatics. And you absolutely don’t need to be a computer freak to do so!
  • We will prepare you to be an expert in information security and data management. You will learn how to translate your knowledge and insights in a comprehensible manner, from computer-talk to human-talk. Computer lingo is one thing. Knowing how to ask the relevant questions, listen actively and formulate comprehensible responses is at least as important.
  • What can you expect? Not an academic education based on heavy manuals, but a hands-on approach! From the first year, we submerge you in actual company life. Thorough project-work, real-life case study’s, participation in congresses, and lectors and guest-speakers straight from the business world: check! To top all of this off, during your last year, you will have an internship of an entire term.
  • A few important courses will be organised in 6-week modules. As such, we can spread out the study load and the exams, and we can offer you feedback more quickly. Win-win!
  • Your job security is ascertained! The demand for datamanagers en security experts has grown exponentially these last couple of years. Thanks to the unique combination of technical know-how, insight into data and your managerial background, companies will be lining up for you!
