DEPARTMENT OF CYBER SECURITY

We are committed to excellence in both teaching and research. 

The department offers a degree programme leading to the award of the Bachelor of Science (Cyber security).

With the ever-increasing integration of technology into our lives—including mobile networks, Wi-Fi and cloud computing applications—there is more need to make sure that those technologies are secured from criminals. As a result, the field of cyber security is growing at a rapid pace.

This degree programme provide a direct route to cybersecurity careers. Students are taught to identify, evaluate, and defend against threats and attacks on networks, data, and information systems.

We expose our students to areas such as cybersecurity analysis, digital forensics, systems security, network security, and cloud computing. Each of these fields features its own technologies, threats, and security measures.
