These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses.
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


In this capstone subject, students work in teams in a studio environment to analyse, design and implement secure projects, integrating skills and knowledge acquired in other subjects throughout the course. The capstone project is an opportunity for students to engage with current industry challenges in cybersecurity and requires students to address wide-ranging or conflicting technical, computing, and other issues in responding to those challenges.

Students analyse project requirements, evaluate design decisions, and explore innovative products, technologies, or opportunities. Assessment focuses on technical capability as well as essential professional skills like communication, project management, leadership, and teamwork, demonstrated through project artefacts created by students during the capstone. Although the capstone is team-based, students individually record their progress and contributions, as well as reflections on their learning and professional development as a cybersecurity professional.
