Abstract—We adopt Industry 4.0 (I4.0) and professional
qualifications for adapting models of deliveries of teaching the
module of Cyber Security at the University of Lincoln (UK). To
achieve this, we investigate I4.0, the challenges it sets to higher
education, and professional qualifications. Our findings are
used to devise three models of delivery, namely Comprehensive,
Partial and Merged. Our discussions show that our strategy of
the integration of I4.0 within the curriculum development
effectively prepares students to stand out from the crowd by
possessing industry ready accreditations along their computer
science degrees and the skills required for their future career in
Index Terms—Assessment strategy, curriculum development, cyber-security, industry 4.0.
