M.Tech | CSE (Cyber Forensics and Information Security)

Programme Overview

  • Cyber Forensics Technology plays a crucial role in detection and prevention of cyber crimes. With the deeper penetration of internet, and digital technology, cyber frauds have increased leading to a huge potential for the development of information security solutions. Cyber Forensics also involves extracting data from various electronic devices such as hard drives, mobile phones, USB drives, flash storage, and more.
  • Mining of the Cloud is also a key deployment of Cyber Forensics.
  • With a nearly exponential rise in the number of cyber crimes and digital frauds, cyber security professionals are today in huge demand. With CMR University’s industry-compliant curriculum, students get to delve deep into areas such as cyber crime investigation, cyber risks, cyber risk prevention, building robust digital security solutions, and thereby completing the programme to become a cyber solutions engineer so as to help both individuals and organizations (as well as societies) stay digitally secure and prevent loss of confidential data.

Assessment and Evaluation

The University follows Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), which provides choice for students to select from the prescribed set of courses and earn credits. Students are awarded grades based on their performance for each courses in a semester and Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), which is a measure of academic performance of a student in a semester. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is used as a measure of overall cumulative performance of a student over all semesters. However, the CGPA is invariably calculated from second semester onwards to facilitate students to know their academic progress.

Every Programme has a prescribed Curriculum or the Scheme of Teaching and Evaluation. It prescribes all the courses/laboratory/other requirements for the degree and sets out the nominal sequence semester wise. Curriculum also includes SWAYAM and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), offered by premier institutions. A student desirous of additional exposure to a course, without the rigors of obtaining a good grade, ‘audits’ a course that helps him to have an edge over others in placements.

The evaluation system to assess the student is comprehensive and continuous during the entire period of Semester, by the faculty who is teaching the course. Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and Semester End Examination (SEE) constitute the major evaluations prescribed for each course, with only those students maintaining a minimum standard in CIE are permitted to appear in SEE of the course. CIE and SEE to carry 50% weightage each, to enable the course to be evaluated for a total of 100 marks, irrespective of its credits.

Before the start of the Academic session of each semester, a faculty may choose for his course Internal Assessment Test and a minimum of two of the following assessment methods with suitable weightage for each: Assignments (Individual and/or Group), Seminars, Quizzes, Group Discussions, Case Studies, Practical Orientation on Design Thinking, Creativity & Innovation, Participatory & Industry Integrated Learning, Practical Activities/Problem Solving Exercises, Class Presentations, Analysis of Industry/Technical/Business Reports, Reports on Guest Lectures/Webinars/Industrial Visits, Industrial/Social/Rural Projects, Participation in Seminars/Academic Events/Symposia or any other academic activity.

The Semester End Examination for all the courses for which students registered during the semester shall be conducted at the end of each semester. Some of the courses, where the student performance is evaluated through CIE, may not have SEE.

The makeup examination facility shall be available to those students who have appeared and failed in the SEE in one or more courses in a semester.
