The contents of the course give understanding of the basic cryptographic tools and devices which are essential in the operating environment of an ICT engineer, such as all electronic and wireless communications, e-commerce applications etc.
Students will team up for a project work on some current and relevant aspect of cryptology. The teams will share their work to the whole group, which gives everyone a broader understanding on the topic.
Task-based assessment supports learning and is continuous throughout the course. Studying in an international group develops students’ ability to intercultural communication and multicultural collaboration.
