About Cyber Engineering

  • What is Cyber Engineering?

    Cyber engineering combines the fundamentals of computer engineering, cryptography, and cybersecurity techniques to design, incorporate, and secure systems across the digital landscape. This includes (but is not limited to) embedded technology, autonomous technology, edge and end-point technologies.

    Careers in Cyber Engineering 

    Careers in cyber engineering include roles like computer engineering, software engineering, embedded systems development, embedded system administration, cybersecurity engineer, and embedded forensics consultant which are commonly seen in autonomous and robotic products, smart products, smart homes, smart cities, DoD, and healthcare products.

    What is Cybersecurity?

    Cybersecurity is the technologies, processes and practices of protecting, administrating, and developing policy of root-of-trust (RoT) for communication/flow of data and information from digital attacks by assessing potential threats from internet interfaces, human interfaces, and combating them with cyber security techniques.

    Careers in Cybersecurity

    Careers in cybersecurity include roles like web or cloud based digital forensics analyst, security consultant and ethical hacker.

    What is the Difference Between Cybersecurity and Cyber Engineering?

    Cyber engineering focuses on the development and securing of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices and microcontroller-based products used in everyday products, transportation, and quality-of-life products while cybersecurity makes sure information-technology / networked systems are protected from unlawful access and disclosure, theft, and damage.
