ECU’s School of Computer and Security Science has introduced a new course in Intelligence.
The course will provide students with an insight into the intelligence community and provide a solid foundation for those who may be interested in developing an career in intelligence.
Developed by Security Science Lecturer, Mr Jeff Corkill, the intelligence course suits students from all disciplines and builds on the successful security science program already in place at the University.
“Whilst completion of this minor will not guarantee entry into the world of intelligence, it will certainly provide an advantage by giving students an insight into the community and providing a point of difference from others in the broader graduate pool,” said Mr Corkill.
Careers in intelligence range from national security with organisations such as the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS), defence organisations including Defence Intelligence Organisation (DIO), law enforcement and even community and customs.
“Careers in intelligence are highly sought and the intelligence community is highly selective in who it recruits.
“The new minor in intelligence will help ECU graduates stand out from the crowd,” said Mr Corkill.
