Introduction

Organizations depend on their information networks for mission-critical operations. Highly trained networking professionals are needed to ensure these infrastructures are resilient and operational. Threats toward networks are ever-increasing and rapidly evolving. The security policies that are developed must be able to ensure accurate evaluation of internet traffic, to appropriately filter malicious users.

Graduates from this program will be well-versed in the technical skills of computer hacking investigation and prevention, paving the way for a potentially lucrative career in the field of computer and networking security. There are global opportunities in sectors that have a rapid demand for networking and cyber-security experts such as the banking or financial industry, large private organizations, or the government.

You will also gain exposure to computer and networking security-related practices in business and the industry through a 12-week industrial attachment. Graduates will revolutionize the field of Information Security with a solid foundation leading to internationally recognized professional credentials awarded by EC-Council (IT Security Certification Body from USA):

  • Certified Ethical Hacking (CEH)
  • Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI)

On successful completion of the program, the graduates will also be awarded a degree from Lancaster University. They will be awarded two certificates, making them graduates of both Sunway University and Lancaster University.

Why Study Here?

Holistic Education

The US education system is one of the most flexible in the world, offering students unlimited choices of courses and focusing on an all-around learning experience. Adopting the US liberal arts approach of inclusiveness, industry relevance, and flexibility, Sunway ADTP has a strong track record of producing well-rounded students equipped for American higher learning.

Seamless Transfer into American Universities

We engage professors from US universities to deliver parts of our academic content. Each year, more than 100 US universities visit Sunway University providing a valuable opportunity for students to engage with and seek advice from admission counselors. We also host representatives from Western Michigan University (WMU) on campus who provide counseling services to students transferring to WMU.

Academic Mentorship and Support

Each ADTP student is assigned an academic advisor who will provide academic guidance and support. Our student-lecturer engagement is high extending over and beyond the classroom. One in four of our lecturers consistently receives “excellent teaching” awards.

Extracurricular Advantage

Each semester our students engage in out-of-class activities e.g. running projects and charity programs as part of their assignments, volunteering in cultural performances, or participating in international conferences. We celebrate bank holidays like Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Independence Day, and Thanksgiving.

University Placement Guidance

We conduct workshops on all aspects of the transfer process—from selecting suitable universities and preparing applications to transitioning abroad. Our “Freshman Seminars” equip students with skills to succeed as a freshman. Our placement team continually supports students to transfer into “best fit” colleges. We receive study-abroad-semester students from US and non-US universities each year, many of which are our alumni for summer semesters. On top of our summer semester subject offerings, we support our alumni by providing referrals, offering proctoring services, and providing internship opportunities.
