Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This Programme aims at producing graduates with:

  1. a wide range of professional knowledge and skills relevant to Information Security,
  2. creativity and innovation,
  3. adaptability to changing technology and society, and
  4. all-rounded attributes.
     

Intended Learning Outcomes

Intended learning outcomes of programme are the attributes of the graduates who have completed the Programme successfully. These attributes are classified into two broad categories. Category A embraces such attributes as knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes that are related to Information Security. Category B embraces all-roundedness attributes possessed by the graduates to support their further development.
 

Category A: Professional/Academic Knowledge and Skills
 

On successful completion of the Programme, students should be able to:

  • apply knowledge of mathematics and science appropriate to the discipline of Information Security;
  • apply knowledge of Information Security to the abstraction and conceptualisation of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) models;
  • analyse an Information Security problem, and identify and define the requirements appropriate to its solution;
  • design, implement, and evaluate an Information Security system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, social and environmental considerations; and
  • use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for the practices in Information Security with an understanding of the limitations.
     

Category B: Attributes for All-Roundedness
 

On successful completion of the Programme, students should be able to:

  • function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal;
  • have an understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities;
  • communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  • analyse the local and global impact of Information Security on individuals, organisations, and society; and
  • recognise the need for and engage in continuing professional development.

 

Characteristics

The programme offers a good mix of basic theory, hands-on practice and application examples. In the latter part of Year One, students can make use of the knowledge that they have acquired to conduct an integrated project. During the summer of Year One, students have the opportunity to join an internship programme. In the Final Year, students can focus on selected areas by choosing relevant Electives.
 

Students can take part in the University's exchange programme through which they study in an overseas institution for one semester. Financial subsidies may be provided by the Faculty of Engineering. The exchange programme provides an excellent opportunity for students to study abroad and broaden their horizons, and allows them to appreciate the cultures of other countries. Very positive experiences have been reported by students who have participated in the programme.
