About the Department
B. Tech. (Bachelor of Technology) in Computer Science and Engineering (Cyber Security) is a 4 years’ duration undergraduate degree program offered by the St. Joseph’s college of Engineering & Technology, SJCET.
Computer Science & Engineering (Cyber Security)
Cyber Security is a specialized area, that’s regarded as a sub stream in Computer Science and Engineering. Cyber Security courses aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to defend the computer operating systems, networks and data from cyber-attacks.
In regard to the changing trends and needs in our cyberspace, cyber security will continue to grow as obligatory technology, to stay digitally connected.
Cyber Security as a profession is evolving through the years, reason being the increasing rate of cybercrimes. Any industry that transacts online or incorporates sensitive data is in need of a Cyber Security expert to guard its data from such delinquents. Our on-line world being a common platform which is accessed by all people from every nook of the world, the scope of cybersecurity is similarly spread throughout the globe. Ultimately this programme will yield next generation cyber security leaders who can be efficaciously employed in various sectors of industries, business corporations, government agencies, authority’s groups, financial bodies, and academic and educational institutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOCIETIES AND ASSOCIATIONS
THE INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS (IEEE)
IEEE opens the door to opportunities that will help students to develop their professional identity in IEEE’s designated fields of interest: sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In addition to accessing a range of membership benefits, students will make global connections with people who can help students along their targeted career path through IEEE’s international community of members and volunteers.
INITIATIVES BEYOND THE CLASS ROOM
Each faculty member in the department is assigned the complete responsibility of 30 students. This Faculty Mentor establishes a close relationship with students, orients them to college practices, follows their progress regularly and guides them throughout the four-year course. Employment of this idea has helped several students to solve the problems they face in the academics. Also this method helps the parents to keep track of their child and their academic performance.
The students with backlogs have a heavy load as they must take exams simultaneously for both the new semester’s subjects as well as for the subjects they fail; and they cannot attend classes in the subjects they have failed. Thus, they do not get any additional teaching in the subjects in which they are weak unless they resort to coaching classes or other private means. This may in turn result in cumulative failures, leading some students to take more years to complete the four-year engineering course. To help our students from such situations, remedial classes are provided by the AI & DS department during the month before the repeat exams, enabling the students to face the difficult papers with greater confidence and ease.
Department offers intense placement training on regular basis.
