The IT industry of Bangladesh is growing very rapidly. Development of ICT plays an important role in the Government’s vision 2041 for “Smart Bangladesh”. To materialize government’s vision of Smart Bangladesh, we need a vast pool of highly skilled manpower in IT sector. At the wake of the recent catastrophe in banking sector (ATM hacking, proliferation of Central Reserve), the nation was caught off-guard with its lack of domestic expertise in the field of information and cyber security. In today’s world, any country and hence her organizations must be prepared to defend themselves against threats in cyberspace. Department of Computer Science and Engineering envisions that it must respond to this national crisis by helping the nation with its resources in building the required skilled manpower in information and cyber security.
The aim of this program is to develop skilled workforce to secure the cyber space of the country. The department would offer this Professional Masters program only for professionals having a job experience of at least one year. The student will bear all costs of operation for his/her study under the programs. Neither the University of Dhaka nor the department will bear any part of the academic and administrative costs. All financial activities of the students will be maintained through the university account as per the irregular program guideline of the university and the department will collect its fraction from the university as prescribed in the guideline to mainly operate the program.
