ECU has Australia’s largest cyber security research and education program and is one of the leading groups in the world. Two of our academic staff are also members of Interpol’s Cyber Crime Experts Group.
The Bachelor of Science (Cyber Security) focuses on the practical and theoretical dimensions of cyber security across a range of fundamental areas, such as network security and vulnerability assessment, information security policy and governance, digital forensics, and ethical hacking.
Students will gain a solid grounding in conventional computer and network security concepts and skills. In addition, the course is designed to meet the changing landscape of secure computing, which involves not only computers, but also network enabled devices such as smartphones, tablet devices, and Internet of Things (IoT).
This course prepares students for careers in the field of cyber security, including areas such as network security, digital forensics, vulnerability assessment, security risk assessment, penetration testing, threat hunting, and incident response.
