This one year postgraduate program aims to create specialists with a deep understanding of cyber security's impact on every aspect of modern life, and to empower cyber security leaders for a resilient, more productive digital future.
You'll undertake advanced level courses covering a range of key topics. You'll learn about the major cyber security challenges facing the world and a range of responses, including technical, policy, organisational, governance and geopolitical.
You'll gain integrated learning experience and advance your professional network by working with a cohort with diverse backgrounds from technology, business, mathematics and humanities, unique to UQ.
As a result, you'll be equipped to look at the field from a different angle, ask bigger questions, and find new and exciting ways to tackle real and emerging cyber security threats.

It's estimated that Australia will need an additional 18,000 cyber security professionals by 2026, so in partnership with industry experts, UQ has developed the first program to genuinely address the interdisciplinary nature of this field, while meeting the need for deep technical specialisation in core areas.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Depending on which field you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
