Download Brochure

In 2020, hackers will break into sensitive data assets every 10 seconds on average, using smarter, mostly human-centered cyber-attacks. They will take advantage of over 30 billion new connected devices over ultra-high speed G4 and G5 networks. Defending against such threats and the ever-tightening privacy regulations globally is a new level of challenge that awaits professionals around the world.

The specialization of Computer Science and Engineering with cyber security provides a hand on experience in the field. The university is also having MOU with EC Council University which is world’s leading university dealing with the courses related to cyber security. The course goes through various threats in cyber security, how these threats occur and ways to defend. Along with this the course also covers the investigation and data recovery using Kali Linux.

Students undergoing this specialization also get the chance to undergo certifications of Ethical Hacking, Network Defender and Forensic Investigator which might help the student get coveted jobs of cyber experts in organizations like NASA, Infosys, Google, and many more.

We also offer specialization in Computer Science and Engineering in – Cloud Computing and Big Data. Students are given practical exposure in each technology by giving them hands on training in our specialized labs of cyber security, cloud computing and big data along with labs of programming, database, networks, operating systems and others.
