ME – Computr Engineering (Cyber Security)


Every day, people are victimized by cybercriminals while online banking transactions, online shopping, online money transfer, etc. The sad truth is that very few criminals can be described as experts. The lack of Cyber Safety and Security awareness make most of the people an easy target for anyone trying to hack into their personal information. The estimated cybercrime cost is over $400 billion per year of the global economy. As a result, most of the companies and organizations of the world, including the Indian Government, are emphasizing cybersecurity a top priority for the coming year and are setting up standards for cyber security protocol as well as creating cyber security awareness in society. Cyber Security Post Graduate program offered through GTU-GSET help students to understand modern information and system protection technology and methods. This AICTE approved Post Graduate ME course of two years duration has an intake of 30 students per year and the admissions are done through ACPC, Gujarat. It involves the learning of cybersecurity tools and techniques, services, systems, programming methodologies, and the best-designed approach. The students can be able to learn about the detection, prevention, and mitigation of cybercrime.


Career Opportunities in Cybersecurity


Cyber Security as a career choice covering the various types of roles, the skill sets required, and the career roadmap for cybersecurity professionals. GSET provides opportunities to the students to work on the real-time problems during their learning duration with the help of a strong linkage with various state/central government security agencies and private companies.  The students are encouraged to attend and explore GTU- International Experience Program (IEP) in the field of cybersecurity such as Cyber Security Summer Training Program at Tel Aviv University, Israel. The institute provides the support for skill development, training, and placement in various esteemed industries and organization such as Deloitte India, KPMG India, and National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), Net- Square Solutions Pvt. Ltd., BlueInfy Solutions Pvt. Ltd., TrasVista, IG Global Business Services India, Cloud24x7 Pvt. Ltd., Sophos Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Alterego Technology Ltd., etc.
