JNTU Hyderabad Introduces New BTech CSE Cyber Security Programme to Meet Growing Demand for Cybersecurity Experts”

To accommodate the increased demand for qualified cyber security experts, the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) in Hyderabad is starting a new BTech CSE Cyber Security programme. Because of the increase in cybercrime and cyberfraud cases, there is a demand for qualified professionals in both government security agencies and commercial enterprises.

The programme will be offered entirely at the university’s campus college in Hyderabad beginning with the following academic year. To provide quality teaching, the JNTU has cooperated with Telangana Police cybercrime experts, who have a successful track record in cracking cybercrime cases. These specialists will help the programme by teaching classes in the third and fourth years of study.

Students enrolling in the programme will receive hands-on training in identifying cybercrime through the use of real-life examples and tools/software used in criminal investigation. The institution has also collaborated with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), which contributed in the course design and will provide classes to students in their third and final years.

The new self-financed programme, which will be taught at the Centre for Excellence in Cyber Security, would admit 60 students each year for a cost of Rs. 1 lakh per year. The TS EAMCET 2023 entrance test will be used to determine admission to the programme.

In addition, JNTU Hyderabad will launch three new self-financed programmes: BTech Biotechnology, BTech Geo-Informatics, and a general BBA course. Students will be admitted to BTech courses through the TS EAMCET, while BBA admissions will be handled through the Degree Online Services Telangana (DOST).

The institution is building a new six-story classroom structure on its campus to accommodate these multidisciplinary courses. Prof M Manzoor Hussain, Registrar of JNTU Hyderabad, stated that the university’s Executive Council has authorised these new courses, which include the unique in-house faculty and experts from the Telangana cybercrime police for the cyber security programme.
