HBKU Focuses on Building Qatar’s Capacity in Computer Science and Engineering with Three Graduate Programs

Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU) will be introducing three groundbreaking graduate programs this fall through its College of Science and Engineering (CSE).
The university’s multidisciplinary academic offerings will be extended with a Master of Science (MS) in Cybersecurity, an MS in Data Science and Engineering, and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Computer Science and Engineering. Information sessions on the programs will be held at 4:30 pm on 11 and 27 April at the HBKU Student Center in Education City.

The MS in Cybersecurity will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to safeguard the information held by organizations and individuals at a time when cyber threats are becoming ever more complex and aggressive. Students will learn about advanced technologies in the field of cybersecurity and how to apply them effectively while also gaining an understanding of policies and ethics related to information technology.
Students enrolled in the MS in Data Science and Engineering will be trained to think analytically and provided with the skills necessary to extract key information from the massive amounts of digital information generated every day by companies, users, and devices.

Both of the new master’s programs will also offer students with the option of either completing a research thesis or working on an industrial project, affording students a way to further develop real-world problem-solving experiences.

Students across all three programs will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities, and be given the opportunity to conduct research alongside HBKU’s world-class faculty members who are leaders in their respective fields.
