The School of Computing's foundational curricula provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the technical aspects of cybersecurity, including topics such as network security, cryptography, and ethical hacking. With hands-on projects and practical coursework, I gained practical skills in vulnerability assessment, incident response, and security management. There was also emphasis on the development of non-technical skillsets such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, which are crucial in the cybersecurity industry. The Polytechnic Technology Programme, which offered opportunities for internships with leading organisations such as GovTech, allowed me to apply my knowledge in real-world scenarios and make a meaningful impact in the field of cybersecurity. The School’s holistic approach to education empowered me to deepen my interest and passion in technology and equipped me with the skills needed to excel in the cybersecurity industry.
