M.E. – Computer Engineering (Cyber Security)


Cyber security is a very fast-moving field. A program in security that aims to be on the forefront must necessarily have a companion-advanced a program that has a good balance between theoretical and practical aspects, analytical methods and system architectures, academic ideas and industry practices.

This program provides a good blend of theory and industrial practice; necessary theoretical background, insight into general and technical aspects of Cyber Security, analytical methods and management practices in the field of Cyber Security are the areas receiving detailed attention. It aims at moulding the student into an Information Security professional. Practicing industry professionals and enterprise experts with little or no knowledge in Cyber Security too can benefit from this program.

FRED Forensic Workstation:

FRED is Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device. The FRED family of forensic workstations are highly integrated, flexible and modular forensic platforms and now include Digital Intelligence's exclusive UltraBay 3D Write Protected Imaging Bay and Ventilated Imaging Shelf. FERD Systems are optimized for stationary laboratory acquisition and analysis. Simply remove the hard drive(s) from the suspect system and plug them into FERD and acquire the digital evidence. FERD will acquire data directly from IDE/EIDE/ATA/SATA/ATAPI/SAS/Firewire/USB hard drives and storage devices and save forensic images to Blu-Ray, DVD, CD or hard drives. FERD systems also acquire data from Blu-Ray, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Compact Flash, Micro Drives, Smart Media, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, xD Cards, Secure Digital media and Multimedia Cards. Furthermore, with the optional tape drive FERD is capable of archiving to or acquiring evidence from LTO ultrium 5 tapes. All FERD systems include the UltraBay, front panel connections, and removable drive trays so there is no need to open up the processing system to install drives or crawl around the back of the unit to attach devices
