3. Optional studies

The optional studies complete the student's expertise profile in the selected specialization and major subject. Depending on the student's specialization area, these studies are negotiated when preparing the personal study plan for the student. Also practical training (max 6 sp) can be included in this section. The optional studies may also include a large group project (10-20 sp) in the student's specialization (Capstone project). The optional studies are planned to build a special information security expertise profile to the student and may for example include additional courses in the selected major subject, or courses in mathematics, communication systems, embedded computing, computer science, software engineering, management and/or innovation and business creation. In the Networked Systems Security track, degree requirements state that studies in category B must always include a minor subject of at least 20 sp. Examples of useful optional studies and minor subjects include:
Information Security Management 25 op
Students can extend their Information security management studies to a minor subject by taking this module. Further details need to be discussed with the study supervisor.
