The Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, cognitive computing, and cyber-physical systems are all transforming how we create and set up our workplaces. The need for technology specialists is gradually rising as automation and data interchange in industrial technologies proliferate and as technologies continue to advance quickly. The future technologists who will create and protect the networks of the future (Cyber Network Security) and usher in the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) are the ones who will benefit from this Bachelor of Technology degree. The degree places a high emphasis on working in multidisciplinary teams and the incorporation of industrial experience, as well as a balanced split between software and hardware capabilities.
You will learn programming, arithmetic, electronics, and web development throughout your first year. After that, you might choose to focus on Cyber Network Security or Industry 4.0. You will learn about autonomous systems, IoT, big data mining techniques and implementation, cyber security, and AI in the Industry 4.0 specialization. You will learn about ethical hacking, communication systems, engineering design, electronics, digital hardware, web technologies, and signals and systems in the Cyber Network Security specialization.
This degree is intended for innovators and problem-solvers who are interested in honing their talents in both hardware and software to work in the domains of the future. The automation, networking, and security of industrial and manufacturing processes are all part of what is known as "Industry 4.0," or the Fourth Industrial Revolution. To stay competitive on a global scale, industries must be adaptable in using new possibilities and embracing technological advancements. With the aim of assuring a competitive manufacturing sector and building infrastructure for economic growth, Industry 4.0 is concentrated on the development of intelligent networking of equipment and processes. With a specialization in Industry 4.0, you'll have the technological know-how necessary to automate, network, and put Artificial Intelligence systems into place.
To address the needs of law enforcement, federal, state, and local governments, as well as our defense, security, and financial businesses, cyber network security has been highlighted as a strategic priority in Australia. It is crucial to protect our country's infrastructure, including the supply of energy, transportation, food, and water, as well as services like healthcare, education, emergency response, and finance, given the increasing difficulties of national cyber security.
