Overview

Overview of Bsc hons in computer science cyber security in Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation Malaysia

This programme is specifically designed to provide students with:

  • The ability to develop technical knowledge, skills and background in the design and organisation of computer systems focusing on cyber security.
  • The ability to critically evaluate design paradigms, languages, algorithms, and techniques used to develop complex software systems related to cyber security.
  • The ability to evaluate and respond to opportunities for developing and exploiting new technologies and applications in cyber security.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

DEGREE LEVEL 1

  •  

Students will learn fundamental skills required by every IT professional, and the basic understanding of programming, mathematical and algorithmic skills. A sound grasp of mathematical techniques and skills in algorithmic thinking are important pre-requisites for their second and third year studies in this area. Computer architecture, operating systems, networks, databases, security and forensic technologies are the underlying platforms in cyber security. Introduction to management introduces the third key area, understanding personal and organisational development, along with independent learning and team working skills.

Common Modules

Specialised Modules
  • Digital Thinking and Innovation
  • Introduction to Management
  • Mathematical Concepts for Computing 
  • Operating Systems & Computer Architecture
  • Programming with Python
  • System Analysis & Design
  • Introduction to Networking
  • Introduction to Databases
  • Introduction to Security and Forensic Technologies

Elective Module (Choose 1)

  • Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming
  • Introduction to C Programming

DEGREE LEVEL 2

A broader range of skills will be learnt, in which students will gain better understanding in Cyber Security related areas. The students should be flexible in performing a range of computing tasks using extended theories and practice related to Cyber Security. In the second year, the core modules deepen the understanding of platform technology, while specialised modules allow them to go further into system & network administration, computing theory, computer systems & low level techniques and implementation of secure systems.

  • Practical CTF Strategies

INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)

Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 16 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.

DEGREE LEVEL 3

Students will draw on their previous studies and industrial experience to refine their personal and professional development in the field of computer science majoring in Cyber Security. Students will move further into Cyber Security by learning the core and specialised modules to enhance new skills and advanced knowledge on the current and future technologies. Elective modules are offered to strengthen their essential skills and knowledge. A final year project requires them to investigate and develop a solution for a real world problem. They will demonstrate the ability to combine technical knowledge, critical thinking, and analytical skills to produce personal achievement portfolio.
