Overview

Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology - Cyber Security

With a focus on providing you with the skills to compete for employment in the ICT industry globally, a Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) gives you the knowledge and ability to stand out in the constantly changing technology landscape.

Cyber Security Major

The highly connected world we live in is filled with threats to our systems and devices. 

This major will enable you to get a foundational understanding of these risks, including the fundamentals of encryption systems, penetration testing, and eForensics, and how to respond to protect businesses and systems of various sizes.

Practical experience

Your learning experience goes beyond lectures, labs and tutorials. The teaching environment at the University of Tasmania aims to provide a distinctive, energising and rewarding university experience for all students.

Led by experienced and approachable staff, your learning could also include an international study exchange, valuable industry placement and practical project work.

In the final year of the BICT, students obtain practical work experience during a full-year project in which you design, engineer and implement ICT solutions to real industry problems.

Human Interface Technology Laboratory (HITLab) is a research and teaching facility focused on building advanced human-computer interface technology. 

It allows us to explore new forms of interface technology made possible by infrastructures such as the NBN and Ubiquitous Computing to realise interfaces in the wild.

Work placement

Students also have the option of undertaking an elective at the end of their second year to do an industry placement for six weeks and gain industry experience in their chosen ICT field.
