Deakin Uni gets cyber security specialist course accreditation

By

Deakin University will be the first university in Australia to offer a fully accredited cyber security qualification, under Australia’s first cyber security course accreditation scheme, after being awarded the course by the Australian Computer Society (ACS).

Yohan Ramasundara, President of ACS said, “ACS has long been recognised as the accrediting body for technology related degrees and post graduate qualifications related to initial professional practice.

“With the growing need for expertise in Cyber Security for our evolving digital economy, introducing recognition for specialist Cyber Security qualifications and expertise was a must”.

ACS accreditation is awarded to an institution and its programs after a “rigorous evaluation of their capacity to produce graduates who have the knowledge and skills required of a professional”.

There are currently more than 340 programs from over 40 institutions accredited by the ACS as meeting graduate standards for initial professional practice.

Professor Karen Hapgood, Deakin’s Executive Dean of Science Engineering and Built Environment, said Deakin’s new Cyber Security accreditation demonstrated the “high quality and academic integrity of its Cyber Security courses”.

“Deakin is proud to be able to offer students a fully accredited cyber security course that will be recognised industry-wide and overseas,” Professor Hapgood said.

“It certainly endorses the high-quality curriculum and the high quality of academic staff teaching our courses and validates Deakin’s decision last year to update its cyber security courses in line with industry and world needs.

“As cyber security becomes more important to our national and global security than ever before, it is vital that students can take comfort that they are being taught at the highest possible level.”
