Industry and Academia have always been at loggerheads with the kind of curriculum that has been taught to students versus the actual requirement when one passes out of the academic institutions. Sensing this as a challenge, Ansal University comes together with the leader in cyber security services in India, Lucideus. Jointly we have produced a curriculum that potentially answers the industry requirements that students need to be groomed and trained in order to kick-start their career in the domain of cyber security. According to the latest report by Intel Security in partnership with the CSIS, the global cyber-security workforce will have over 1 million job vacancies by 2019.Increase in Cybersecurity crimes on both individuals and businesses accentuate the need for IT security professionals. BTech in Cyber Security will prepare students for an exciting career in the domain. Some of the career options that will open up for students are - Chief Information Security Officer, Cyber Intelligence Analyst, Cyber Risk Analyst, Cyber Security Expert and many more.
Saket Modi, Co founder and CEO of Lucideus said, “This is the ideal time when we partner with an academic institution to go ahead and launch a course in cyber security because it is something that is answering the need of both - the present and the future. Not only that, we today sense while serving a lot of very large Indian companies that the demand and supply are absolutely disconnected.”
Dr. Raj Singh, Vice Chancellor of Ansal University while inaugurating the event said, “Cybersecurity market is expected to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $170 billion by 2020. Ansal University aims at training young minds to get a deep knowledge of the changing needs and demands of the IT industry.”

People around mentioned that a road was going to be built over the Bawdi and that the days of the existence of Bawdi were numbered”, she said.
Day one was marked by a visit to the site by SSAA faculty and students of B Arch and Built Heritage programme, who took the challenge as a part of their studio projects. The Bawdi was being filled with earth for road construction on the very day, which was brought to the notice of the authorities, resulting in stopping any more earth filling.
