    Re: Cyber security

    I could only find 19 Cybersecurity masters https://www.mastersportal.com/search...-master|tc-AUD and none appear to be in Brisbane. However, online masters are avaliable if that is something you are interested in?

    Re: Cyber security

    I don't think that list above is comprehensive/up to date, UTS have started a Masters In Cyber Security but it isn't listed on there.

    If you're considering online programs, check out the Online Masters of Science in Cyber Security at Georgia Tech in the US, they've just recently started taking applications for it. https://pe.gatech.edu/degrees/cybersecurity

    Georgia Tech are very highly ranked (generally among Australia's best unis overall, but much higher for Engineering/Comp Sci) and have experience running high quality and respected online courses due to their Masters in Computer Science program. They don't charge a premium for international students and the online course is priced very competitively, so it ends up being quite a bit cheaper then a course here.

    Alternatively UNSW ADFA in Canberra run block mode intensive (i.e. on campus, but only a few days-a couple of weeks per semester) masters in cyber security which might also be worth considering. They might also offer some subjects online, i'm not sure.

    Yeah Macquarie also has one which doesn't appear to be listed.

    Griffith Uni has one at the Gold Coast

    Re: Cyber security

    I didn't even realise cybersecurity had a degree... makes sense I guess, but I thought it would've been a major.

    That being said, given the relative infancy of this, I don't think the degree makes as much of a difference as it would in other fields.

    2000-05 BHHS UAI: 97 Ext 1 Mathematics, Adv English, Economics, Business Studies, IPT (SR)
    2006-09 UNSW B Commerce Accounting, Finance
    2010-11 Institute of Chartered Accountants GradDipCA TAX110, MAA210, AAA310 (M), FIN111, EBA211 (M)

    Back in the day I would have asked you to please give me rep by clicking .

    It often is just a major in Science, IT or Engineering.

    The interesting thing about Cybersecurity is it's kind of multidisciplinary in a way, like you can look at it from a regulation/legal point of view, a mathematical point of view (cryptography) or various distinct technical points of views.

    For example, the Georgia Tech program is actually offered by multiple schools depending on which specialisation you choose: https://www.gatech.edu/academics/deg...bersecurity-ms
