In this graduate certificate, you will complete four subjects:
- Structures of Cyberspace
- Programming Fundamentals
- An Introduction to Information Security, and
- Case Studies in Cyber Security.
In Structures of Cyberspace, you'll learn how to apply abstract thinking to cyberspace scenarios and navigate through the language and other dimensions of cyber security to expand your knowledge, skills and application. You'll also learn how to communicate abstract ideas using text, symbols and diagrams, perform simple calculations and collaborate within a small team.
In Programming Fundamentals, you'll analyse simple computing problems, devise suitable algorithmic solutions, and code these algorithmic solutions in a computer programming language. Finally, yo’ll learn how to develop maintainable and reusable solutions using the object-oriented paradigm.
In An Introduction to Information Security, you'll acquire a practical overview of the issues involved in information security and assurance. This subject will also take you through the application and skills required to study further concepts in information security. You'll also communicate and interpret ideas related to the principles of information security.
In your final subject, Case Studies in Cyber Security, you'll devise and discuss information security risks and challenges encountered in modern information security applications. You'll also learn how to identify professional careers or postgraduate research opportunities in information security. Focus will also be on work practice and group dynamics theory relevant to the interdisciplinary and people-centred nature of information security. Finally, you'll learn how to communicate both technical and non-technical material in various forms to a variety of audiences.
