By By Andrew NeergaardPublished Aug 04, 2018 08:19:23The university in Ottawa has opened a cyber security program in its engineering and health sciences programs.
It’s called McMaster’s Cybersecurity Program, and it’s designed to teach students the skills needed to be cyber-attack experts.
It’s being taught by an expert in cybersecurity from McMaster’s Computer Science and Engineering department.
“This is a really, really, great program,” said Peter O’Connor, a McMaster undergraduate.
“I think the program is going to be a great resource for our students.”
McMaster students will learn how to exploit vulnerabilities in networks and networks of the world.
They’ll also learn how best to protect themselves from attacks.
They’ll also gain an appreciation for how networks work, and how to identify and identify patterns of network activity.
“They’re going to teach us the basics of how systems work,” said O’Brien.
“And it’s going to give us a little bit of an overview of how we can get ourselves out of that sort of situation.”
McMaster’s Cyber Security Program is part of a new program McMaster is launching to educate students in the areas of cybersecurity and healthcare.
McMaster is expanding its cyber security degree program to include medical school, a program that’s in its third year.
This year, students will be able to apply to the program and gain a bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity.
McMaster is looking to hire more students to join the program this year.
“The major challenge is that we have so many different types of cybersecurity challenges,” said McMaster’s Vice-President for Health Sciences and Medical Education.
“So it’s really important that we really focus on the different areas that we are addressing.”
It’s an ambitious goal.
McMaster has about 30 students enrolled in the program.
They’ve completed three years of courses in computer science and engineering.
“It’s kind of a dream for a lot of us to be able get this kind of knowledge to our students,” said Sarah Bowers, a student at the University of Calgary.
Bowers has completed three-quarters of the four-year course.
She says it’s one of the most rewarding things she’s done in her life.
“You get a sense of, yeah, this is something that is really relevant,” she said.
“This is something we’re all doing, and this is the kind of thing that we need to do, because we’re not just here for the school year.”
