According to the written statement from YÖK, cyber security experts will be trained in universities in order to ensure digital security, which has become important especially for public institutions and companies with the increase in digitalization.
In accordance with the protocol signed between YÖK and the Presidency Digital Transformation Office last year, it was decided to open cyber security vocational schools in 4 universities with technoparks.
Qualified workforce will be provided to the sector
In this context, it is aimed to provide qualified workforce to the sector in vocational schools to be established in Ankara, Ege, Gebze Technical and Istanbul Technical universities.
In cyber security vocational schools to be opened in technoparks, students will be given training on security technologies, network security, penetration tests and data analysis, as well as basic topics in the field of cyber security.
English preparatory class
During their education, students will do laboratory and project studies where they will gain practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge. There will be an English preparatory class in cyber security vocational schools.
Students will receive practical training in industry-specific environments. The curriculum of the program will be prepared with the Presidency Digital Transformation Office and sector representatives.
Both scholarships and employment support will be provided to students who will prefer cyber security vocational schools. Collaboration will be made with leading companies in the sector so that students can easily find a job when they graduate.
