Four Full Professorships (W3) in Information Security
The research institute for Cyber Defence (CODE) at the Bundeswehr University Munich has been substantially expanded to
become the research institute for „Cyber Defence and Smart Data“ of the Bundeswehr and the Federal Government institutions.
CODE was established in 2013 with the objective of bringing together experts from different faculties and scientific disciplines as
well as expertise from industry and government agencies to conduct research in cyber and information space. CODE pursues a
comprehensive, integrated and interdisciplinary approach to implementing technical innovations and concepts for the protection
of data, software and ICT infrastructures in accordance with legal and commercial framework conditions. It has already established
important strategic partnerships in this area. The objective of the expansion is to unite the Bundeswehr‘s and the Federal
Government‘s research initiatives in the area of Cyber Defence and Smart Data and to establish the CODE research institute as the
primary point of contact in the cyber and information domains of the Bundeswehr and the Federal Government.
Research and teaching in the area of cyber security is already being carried out as part of the bachelor‘s and master‘s programs in the
Department of Computer Science. A new independent master‘s program in Cyber Security was launched on January 1st 2018.
As part of the expansion of CODE, the Department of Computer Science at Bundeswehr University Munich seeks to appoint, at the
earliest possible date:
