B.Tech Computer Science & Engineering Cyber Security

About the Program

In a well-connected business ecosystem, strongly strategized cyber security practices are much sought after, to enable confidential computing. With a projected market size of 366.1 billion USD by 2028, there is an increasing need of cybersecurity professionals in sectors including banking, defence, financial services, retail, manufacturing, IT, and telecommunications. Our new program will aim at training our students across the five major verticals of cybersecurity including infrastructure, applications, networks, cloud, and IoT.  

This has generated significant interest in devising and deploying AI and ML based solutions in most of the industry verticals such as Health-care, Finance, Retail, Energy, Manufacturing, Transportation, Pharmaceuticals, Agriculture and Education
