Division of Software Science and Engineering - Cyber Security


Asan Engineering Building Room #230






As ICT is increasingly becoming an essential part across various sectors of society, cyber security is also emerging as an essential element in all tasks performed by computer. Amid a rapid growth of diverse ICT convergence industries, existing risks in cyberspace are encroaching into the real world as physical threats that may cause economic damage and social turmoil. However, there is a shortage of systematically trained security professionals. The Department of Cyber Security was newly established in response to such social demands and expectations. With the aim to nurture security experts required in the field and lead the development of cyber security technologies both at home and abroad, the department provides systematic education with particular focus on the theory and practice of cyber security technologies in ICT and other convergence industries on the basis of fundamental knowledge and skills in computer engineering.
