Global Education Services of Manipal University would offer post-graduation course (Master's degree) in cyber security and data sciences from the academic year 2017-2018 at its centre of excellence here, said an official on Wednesday.

The varsity has tied up with Deakin University of Australia to offer the post-graduation courses and short and long-term training programmes in the specialised subjects.

"The tie-up with Deakin ushers an era of education partnership and a strong university relationship," said Manipal University Vice-Chancellor H. Vinod Bhat on the occasion.

The joint agreement was signed by Manipal Group Vice-President A.P. Ramabhadran and Deakin Vice-Chancellor Jane den Hollander here.

The Group's Data Science and Cyber Security Centre of Excellence will be set up soon in the Electronics City on the southern outskirts of this tech hub.

The agreement envisages solving sector specific big data problems, developing knowledge and practices in complex problems and bringing methodological consistency relevant to the Indian context.

"The centre will work with solutions of the pattern recognition and data analytics centre at Deakin to solve analytics challenges faced in healthcare, IT and banking financial services and insurance (BFSI) sectors," said Ramabhadran in a statement.

The centre will also investigate and address problems in key technology areas in the Indian ecosystem spanning health, insurance, banking, security and education.

"The courses are designed to get hands-on experience in sectors like BFSI, IT and manufacturing which are prone to threats," added Hollander.
