Advancements in information and communication technologies have led us to this era of information age. Abundance of data and information sharing put a growing demand of expertise in the area of Cyber Security. The importance of having a strong foundation of the core principles of Cyber Security is quite obvious. There is a dire need of building the core competency in the area like foundations of Cyber Security, hardware and software security platforms, secure programming practices, and the ways of secure human-computer interaction. The program of Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security (BS-CySec) is aimed to fulfil all of these needs. BS-CySec program is expected to produce the trained and skillful Cyber Security experts who would have developed core computing foundation according to international standards and would be able to analyze security, ethical, & privacy issues, to devise the solutions. Upon completion, students will be able to evaluate security trends, recognize best practices, and understand IT security products and threats.
Aims and Objectives of The Program
The BS (CySec) program intended to produce skilled professionals to understand the processes that impact information security, safeguarding information assets, collection and preservation of digital evidences, analysis of data, and identification and fixing of security vulnerabilities.
The program will equip students with the fundamental knowledge of computer science that forms the technical foundation of the field, with an essential focus on experiential learning through laboratory exercises in the security courses. This degree is a state-of-the-art course with a perfect blend of Cyber Security that is designed to set the graduates up for immediate industry success by combining and leveraging today’s cutting-edge technology with real-world scenarios.
