Cyber Security Lab - Inaugurated by Shri M. R. Madhusudhan
The new cyber security lab was officially inaugurated at the university on September 15th, a day celebrated by the Engineering community across India as ‘Engineer's Day’, as a tribute to the renowned Indian Engineer, Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. Through this association, Tata Communications and SASTRA, which ranks among the top 300 universities in Asia , have built a curriculum in cyber security with a focus on training, developing and strengthening the practical application of cyber security, encompassing the process and technology elements of cyber threat detection and mitigation.
Formally inaugurating the lab, Madhusudhan Mysore, CEO, Tata Communications Transformation Services (TCTS), said, While there is a higher impetus to opt for STEM courses, the challenge is getting the right kind of industry support, exposure and hands-on practical experience. These university students are the next generation of professionals and business leaders in the making. Private organisations have the means, expertise and the technology to offer to Academia in order to create the right conditions and environment for students to learn and build on their theoretical and practical knowledge. We are very excited to play a role in enabling these young students to develop specialised skills and thrive, as they go on to become confident and accomplished professionals.
