Academic Centres of Cyber Security Excellence (ACCSE)

For: 

The Academic Centres of Cyber Security Excellence (ACCSE) program is part of Australia's $230 million Cyber Security Strategy launched by the Prime Minister on 21 April 2016.

The Government has committed $1.9 million over four years (2016–2017 to 2019–2020) for the establishment of ACCSE at the University of Melbourne and Edith Cowan University to:

  • help build Australia's capability in cyber security by encouraging more students to undertake studies in cyber security
  • increase the number of highly skilled post-graduates with the job ready skills needed to work in Australian business and government to tackle emerging cyber security challenges
  • provide support for research that addresses key cyber security challenges confronting the nation.

It is expected that ACCSE will be self-sustaining with ongoing operations funded through student course fees and fee-for-service income, including from Government agencies and other external sources.
