The technology sector isn’t just growing, it’s evolving, so now is the perfect time to turn your tech hobby into a career with a degree in technology. The job you have in the future may not even exist right now – you could be protecting people’s privacy by fighting cyber-crime, using data analytics to drive decision making in health, business or government or building new systems, apps and games.
International student Shuang, came to Murdoch to study a double major in Internetworking and Network Security and Cyber Security and Forensics, with the goal of securing a career in the fast-paced world of technology.
“Internetworking and cyber security are promising fields and offer great possibilities for career development.
“Networks are everywhere right now. To work on the security and effectiveness of them has become more and more important and so I believe that I will get a good job after I graduate from Murdoch.”
