Are you excited by the opportunity to solve cyber security challenges and protect businesses from threats? Our innovative Master of Networking with a Major in Cyber Security (MNet Major in CybSec) was developed in collaboration with industry to ensure the course remains highly-relevant in a rapidly evolving industry. That’s why we now offer three areas of specialisation: network management, cloud networking and software engineering.
This program embraces the most relevant and up-to-date methods in use across the industry today. You will develop the skills and knowledge required to identify, analyse, and respond to cyberattacks and threats. You will learn about cybersecurity, penetration testing, security management, and ethical hacking.
Apply your knowledge to real-world businesses through case studies and industry projects. Gain hands-on practical experience with Cisco, Microsoft and Riverbed Networking technology. Develop the “soft skills” employers are looking for, such as communication, collaboration and project management. Whatever your goals, this course will ensure you are career-ready.
Capstone Projects and Industry Connections
As part of Master of Networking degree, you will need to undertake the final year project units:
MIT’s School of IT & Engineering have designed these units to provide you with real world, experience, working for an industry client. They will provide you with a capstone final year project in a team environment through research, analysis and development. You will tackle real world complex problems with technical and creative skills.
Our past students have worked on capstone projects such as:
As an MIT student, you will have access to the state-of-the-art labs and facilities. All MIT’s labs are equipped with the latest software to hone your skill. You will also get access to MIT’s Library of the latest books/ eBooks and hundreds of online Academic publications that will keep you knowledgeable of the latest and greatest. With 24 hour digital access, you are never too far away from the latest news and journals in the academic/research space.
Learn from experts
Our school attracts some of the best minds in the engineering and networking field, like Computer and Mathematical Scientist Professor Savitri Bevinakoppa in Melbourne and artificial intelligence expert A/Prof Tony Jan in Sydney.
