Success story

“While working on my bachelor's thesis, I gained hands-on experience with data mining, Python, Git, and other practical skills. Eventually, my thesis won the Dean’s award of Faculty of Informatics.

After the thesis defense, I received a stipend to publish the results and collaborate with researchers from three American universities as part of my master’s thesis.”

Success story

“I have developed an open-source tool called Cyber Sandbox Creator as a part of an international European Union project Cyber Security for Europe.

At the same time, the work I did constituted my master’s thesis. It was an excellent opportunity to try software development in practice, learn new technologies, and gain valuable experience during my studies.”

Success story

“I’ve been working with people from the CYBERSEC lab since my master's studies began. I started with preparing tasks for the Kybersoutěž competition.

This was a great experience since I was free to create scenarios on the topics I was interested in, learned something new, and even got paid. As our cooperation worked well, I wrote my thesis in the lab, winning the Dean's award as a nice bonus.

After exploring several opportunities, I realized that cybersecurity education is the area I want to gain deeper expertise in. Therefore, I smoothly continued with my Ph.D. here.”
