Optus has signed an agreement with the University of South Australia (UniSA) to educate Australia’s next generation of cyber security and data science specialists. The joint venture will establish an Optus and UniSA led Cyber Security Research and Collaboration Hub in the Australian Cyber Collaboration Centre (A3C) in Adelaide’s innovation precinct dubbed ‘Lot Fourteen’.

The hub brings together industry, customers, partners, academics and students to solve cyber issues and pave the way for new products and services, Optus said. Students will be able to engage with industry representatives and businesses, while they are studying in a hub, that will see academics, students and technical and business experts working side by side.

Already partners in Lot Fourteen’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Living Lab project, launched in 2019, the Optus and UniSA alliance will also support the Lab’s data analytics and machine learning projects.

Optus and UniSA will appoint a joint Chair of Cyber Security and Data Science to lead teaching and research across the University and at Lot Fourteen. The alliance will deliver multi-disciplinary education courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students, along with the creation of a joint research and innovation fund to develop and attract innovation to South Australia.

The Optus and UniSA agreement allows for the annual funding of an Optus scholarship program to support student and PhD enrolment in cyber security and data science related fields of study. The agreement will also leverage the global industry knowledge and local experts from Trustwave, the cybersecurity arm of Optus.
