Information is often an organisation’s most precious asset – it’s also one of its most vulnerable assets. New information security threats and attacks are constantly developing and the only solution is to develop increasingly secure networks. The result? Networks and security are subject areas that are universally important to information systems.

The Networks and Security major in the Bachelor of Computer and Information Sciences (BCIS) offers hands-on projects to enable you to move beyond a theoretical understanding of the field, and enable you to apply your knowledge in implementing networks and secure systems. You study the basics and infrastructure of networking with a practical view towards developing skills that enable you to configure, implement and analyse network devices. This includes information network administration and network security to an advanced level. As a graduate of this major you’ll be able to effectively design and implement network and security solutions and have a sound understanding of contemporary information security practices and technologies.
