About the Graduate School

The KIT Graduate School Cyber Security is an offer for doctoral researchers in the field of cyber security. Members of the Graduate School have access to

high-quality offers for scientific, technical, and interdisciplinary training,
regular events for personal and professional exchange,
communication services designed to assist and support authors,
tailor-made support by the school's coordinator,
active involvement in the school's decision-making process, and
career advice for academia and industry.

The Graduate School serves as a platform to connect researchers at the graduate level, fostering collaboration beyond disciplinary boundaries. Today, the demand for interdisciplinary research in our field is great: for cyber security to be effective, a holistic understanding of an IT system is crucial. We firmly believe that interdisciplinary work and frequent exchange of ideas between researchers of different cyber security domains are essential and should be encouraged from the ground up. 

The KIT Graduate School Cyber Security brings together the different disciplines and fields of application in cyber security research pursued at KIT. The impressive breadth of research is reflected in the school's five research fields.

Cyber security is a cross-cutting field of research. It plays an important role in different domains of the KIT Center Information ˑ Systems ˑ Technologies (KCIST). As part of KCIST, the KIT Graduate School Cyber Security helps secure the quality of doctoral research on information technology at KIT.
