Current Student Profiles

Collaboration with fellow students from different backgrounds
This is where new paradigms and invaluable networks are born.

As an independent graduate school, IISEC has students of all ages, professions and positions. There are many motivations for study, whether it be for career enhancement or gaining a step-up, professional requirements, or purely academic interests. The daily discussions and activities, which could be likened to cross-cultural exchanges across fellow students from different backgrounds, help to deepen mutual understanding and to discover new aspects of information security. In addition students are able to form valuable networks both inside and outside the classroom.

Current Situation

Approximately 80% of our students are mature students. They manage their time and balance work and study. Some students also take a break from their careers to focus on their studies for a period of time, in order to prepare for the next step in their career. For new graduates with no previous working experience, meeting these mature students will be an invaluable experience in developing a vision and their career plans for the near future.

Doctoral Course

A number of our PhD students belong to a company or a government agency that already have substantial research achievements. This is a very welcome development for the institute as our aim is to establish a new discipline for Information Security. In addition to the excellent interdisciplinary research results that can be expected from friendly exchange between PhD students and faculty members, we find it very encouraging from the perspective of improving the educational effect on our Master's students.
