University of Tirana established a new master program

After a great cooperation in the AEP program, University of Tirana and NTNU Gjøvik have continued a successful collaboration through Erasmus+ and teaching exchange. 

In 2015 Univ. of Tirana with Prof. Dr. Kozeta SEVRANI in collaboration with NTNU Gjøvik established a new master program: The Master of Science in Information Security program. 29 students (20 Females and 9 Males) were registered in the first academic year, 2015-2016, while in 2016-2017 academic year 26 students (23 Females and 3 Males) are studying. Later this year the first generation is expected to graduate from this program.

Thanks to this cooperation univ. of Tirana have sent to NTNU Gjøvik 6 exchange Bachelor/master students for one academic year, 5 academic staff, and 2 PhD students (1 for one semester, and 1 for one year). On august 2017 there will be sent 4 other bachelor/master students for one academic year, 1 PhD student, and 2 academic and administrative staff. 

While Prof. As. Sule Yildirim Yayilgan and Prof. Dr. Stewart Kowalski have taught 2 full courses in Master of Science in Information Security program in Tirana. The director of NTNU Gjøvik has also visited univ. of Tirana.

Lately the uni. Of Tirana has applied for EU funds with NTNU Gjøvik as the main partner. In February 2017 they have submitted a project for building the curricula in Information Security: “Development and Implementation of Information Security curriculum in Western Balkan region – DISEC”. Tirana is looking forward for the evaluation during August/September 2017, and hopefully they will be engaged in another cooperation with NTNU and other partners.
