In the Graduate Certificate of Cybersecurity, you’ll deepen your understanding of computer network security and learn to prevent cyber-attacks.
This course allows students to identify, demonstrate, diagnose and fix IT security risks in software information systems such as web and desktop applications and internet-based services.
This course will build on a student’s undergraduate STEM qualifications or relevant industry experience. Industry-supported, project-based-learning is a feature of this course with alignment to the anti-virus, penetration testing and web security industries.
The Graduate Certificate of Cybersecurity is an exit point from the Master of Cybersecurity for students who only want a Graduate Certificate in cybersecurity.
