According to the CATA (Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance) report, the Canadian Security industry has been the fastest growing among Canadian industries. This is a trend observed internationally. A recent census indicates that Canada has over 700 information and communications technology (ICT) security companies. Demand for qualified IT security staff is growing fast, with the global total of professionals expected to increase to 2.1 million by 2008 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.7% from 2003.

The M.Eng. focuses on Integrated Security Technologies and Policies aims to provide interdisciplinary training in the new era of security technologies which requires “IS Professionals", that is, engineers with a comprehensive know-how and a holistic understanding of security technologies, policies and sciences.
