DECAMP - Open Distributed European Virtual Campus on ICT Security

Increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks are a growing threat to organisational networks and ultimately to the economy, to national and international security. The need for ICT expertise to defend against these attacks and to enforce security is clearly identified. Consequently, the demand for skilled network security professionals is set to accelerate dramatically. The DECAMP Project caters effectively to this trend. It pioneers the creation and implementation of a new model for an open technology online campus. It is carried out by a strategic partnership between specially selected computer sciences departments of 6 EU universities. Each has an internationalization strategy aiming to attract foreign students and teachers. The Consortium consists of: Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS), University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB), University of Padua (UNIPD), University of South Wales (USW), Helsinki Metropolia UAS (MET), University of Cantabria (UC). Siemens AG, Germany, Info World, Romania, and Aix-Marseille University, France, will support the strategic partnership as associated partners. The DECAMP courses cover IT-security aspects in: Network Management and Computer Networks (MUAS), eHealth systems (UPB), Wireless networking (UNIPD), Applied forensics (USW), WEB application (MET), Cloud networking (UC).
