Khalifa University has announced that five students from its MSc in Information Security and MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering programs and two Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering students recently presented research on cyber security.
Cyber security is a major area of focus in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the country continues its commitment to sustainable developments. Cyber security is key to the success of these initiatives.
“As the UAE continues to embrace SMART technologies and advancements in faster, more efficient, ways to conduct business, finance and public services, the threat of attack or information theft is always going to be a major focus,” Khalifa University SVP of Research and Graduate Studies Dr. Mohammed Al Mualla said.
Al Mualla noted that, because of this, the university has developed its MSc in Information Security program and encouraged students to explore the field.
“Cyber and Information Security is probably one of the fastest growing fields, not just in the UAE, but in the world, and it’s a field that’s in need of high-quality, intelligent and accomplished researchers and engineers,” he said. “Khalifa University is proud to supply the human capital, knowledge and innovation needed for continued advancement and development in this key area.”
