On April 30, 2019, Sanskriti University and EC-Council University signed an MoU to impart necessary cybersecurity education to the B. Tech and M. Tech students at Sanskriti University.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which brings cybersecurity education through EC-Council University to Sanskriti University students was signed during an event on the “Importance of Cybersecurity at the individual, corporate and state level,” organized at the premises of Sanskriti University. The day honored the presence of Mr. Abel Daniel, Director for Academic Alliances International at EC Council University as the Chief Guest. The highlight of the one-on-one between Mr. Daniel and the students of Sanskriti University included the introduction to popular ethical hacking concepts with a detailed description of how cybercrimes are committed and enlightened both students and faculty on the best security practices to stay safe and protected in today’s virtual world.
Mr. Daniel pointed out, during his address, the increasing talent gap in the market and how the need for cybersecurity professionals is gaining momentum. He then went on to say, “By studying at ECCU, you will equip yourselves with the knowledge, skills and ability that will enable you to fill the demand-supply gap of cybersecurity professionals, not only in India but across the world”.
The MoU is a partnership at dual levels which will allow students at Sanskriti University to opt for a non-degree status at EC-Council University or opt for the B. Tech in Cybersecurity degree program. By attending the B. Tech in Cybersecurity degree program, students will gain access to the following EC-Council University courses – CIS 403 (Network Security, Firewalls and VPNs), CIS 404 (Hacker Techniques, Tools and Incident Handling) and CIS 406 (System Forensics, Investigation and Response). These offerings at Sanskriti University would allow its students to attain EC-Council’s industry-recognized certifications, the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), Certified Network Defender (C|ND), and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (C|HFI) which also forms part of ECCU’s Bachelor program. These courses by ECCU will be imparted by practicing faculty through an intense curriculum.
