B.Tech in Cyber Security

B.Tech in Cyber Security


Indus University is working closely with Heritage Cyberworld LLP as a knowledge partner for all its courses related to Cyber Security.

B.Tech in Cyber Security Course Details

B.Tech in Cyber Security is a 4-year undergraduate degree that focuses thorough understanding of topics like Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems, Network Security, Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Cryptography, and Cyber Crime. The course guides the students in maintaining digital records or conducting investigations to determine who was involved in performing prohibited tasks. The B.Tech Course in Cyber Security is ideal for candidates who are interested in learning more about the sophisticated threat intelligence used in the cybersecurity field and who want to enhance their understanding of malware reverse engineering, penetration testing, and cyber forensics. Students should apply for the programme in Engineering College as it proves to be an excellent career for such remarkable minds. Students who want to take on a demanding job profile while earning banks should do so.

Because it is difficult, expensive, and vitally important, the field of cybersecurity has a significant influence. Working in cybersecurity allows one the chance to protect people's data, maintain track of it, and alert people to significant issues. The students must complete 24 weeks of required instruction and submit a final project before the programme is complete. Candidates that choose these programmes must be fascinated by cybercrime and hacking. Candidates who want to succeed in this field need to be able to solve problems, take a pragmatic approach, and exercise executive function.
