Module Description: This module is a culminating course for students majoring in Computer Science with a focus on Cybersecurity. This course is designed to integrate the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the Cybersecurity curriculum, allowing students to work on a real-world project that demonstrates their mastery of Cybersecurity concepts, techniques, and technologies. In this project-based course, students will identify, design, and implement Cybersecurity-driven solutions to complex problems that the industry faces.
