My choice to study with Murdoch University was due to its highly positive reputation compared to other universities and its association with the Innovative Research Universities network. They also provide programmes which fit my career needs flawlessly, and exceeded my expectations of the syllabus. I found the “Cyber Forensics and Information Technology” and “Information Security Policy and Governance” modules to be especially practical for my work.

As my current role involves investigation of suspects’ electronic devices and monitoring suspicious activity within company networks, my Degree has helped me understand my job scope in greater detail and allows me to improvise investigation methods. It also educates me on performing my job ethically.

As a part-time student, I appreciate that Murdoch University provides flexible study schedules, suitable for part-time students, and keeps assignment and revision deadlines reasonable for us to cope with. The lecturers’ presentations were clear and paced evenly so as not to overwhelm students, and I have found the lecturers themselves to be quite helpful.

To my fellow students, I recommend Murdoch University as my choice to study with as they offer well-organised programmes that focus on the essentials.

I am glad to say that my Murdoch journey has been rewarding thus far. Exposure to industry-relevant modules like Forensics Data Analysis and Cyber Forensics, has laid a solid foundation for me to appreciate how different kinds of events and network traffic flows work. Working concurrently as an Engineer in a Security Operations Centre, I am able to tap on the data analytical skills learnt to effectively monitor and investigate offences that occur in the organisation’s network.

On top of that, as an individual who seeks career progression, I strongly believe that diving into more than one area of specialisation will enhance my versatility to future employers. Pursuing a Double Major has matched my thirst for learning with my two main fields of interest – Cyber Forensics and Information Security, opening doors to more career pathways.

Since young, I have always wanted to pursue a career in cyber security. Upon attaining a Higher Nitec certificate in Network Security Technology and a Diploma in Information Technology from Republic Polytechnic, I was motivated to advance my tertiary education with
Murdoch University.

Reminiscing my Kaplan journey reminds me of my deep appreciation for the refreshing curriculum delivered by experienced lecturers. Not only were they able to highlight the essence of each topic through the sharing of real-life experiences, they patiently guided us in terms of prioritising our workload. The knowledge I have gained from this Degree programme has strengthened my adaptability in countering real-world issues such as spotting key indicators in system faults, performing active hunting and providing prompt incident responses.

In search of enhancing my credentials, I was attracted to Murdoch University due to its stellar reputation in grooming graduates with strong employability prospects. There were many Double Majors to choose from and I eventually decided to enrol for a Degree in Cyber Forensics, Information Security & Management and Business Information Systems. My Double Major Degree not only taught me to pinpoint an organisation’s weak security governance, it exposed me to varied ways of implementing proper data storage systems and also enhanced my analytical skills.

I was offered a new role in managing critical security governance issues and adeptly applied my theoretical knowledge to drive productivity and revenue for digital security in my organisation. Pursuing a Double Major Degree has expanded my perspectives, and I encourage others to take it on with Murdoch University as well.

Aiming for gainful and lucrative employment, I decided to switch to an IT career, which I felt would also be a fulfilling experience. With its flexible study schedule, wide range of programmes, and the option to take any number of modules per trimester, Murdoch University was the obvious choice. The flexibility alone is advantageous for part-time students like myself.

Set on acquiring an IT-related qualification, I began with a Kaplan Diploma in Information Technology as my foundation. Through its completion, I had smooth advancement to my chosen Bachelor of Science in Cyber Forensics & Information Security and Computer Science Double Major Degree.

Seeing how computer science and cyber and information security go hand in hand, I chose to study both in a Double Major programme to gain knowledge and increase my opportunities in both fields.

My efforts have paid off, and my Bachelor’s Degree education has enabled me to develop essential skills related to my work. I would recommend students take up Double Majors to increase their employability and expand their job options.

Believing that there was an increasing demand for labour in the IT sector, I chose to broaden my knowledge in two specialisations, Computer Science and Cyber Forensics. As a Software Engineer today, I can actively apply the coding skills and computer science principles gleaned during my studies to code and create progressive software compliant with coding standards.

Gaining a recognised Double Major Degree from Murdoch, which is accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS), further affirms that choosing Murdoch University has been the best decision I have made.
