A statement from Kaspersky Lab said the deal would help improve the cyber security education in courses run by Swinburne's School of Software and Electrical Engineering.
Swinburne students and teaching staff will be able to take advantage of the "train the trainer" program that provides information on industry insights and best practices.
“This partnership will enable our staff to remain at the cutting-edge of cyber security technology in Australia and the world,” said Professor Hung Nguyen, pro vice-chancellor of Swinburne’s Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.
"Together with Kaspersky Lab we can foster the development of educational and research projects in the field of cyber security."
Kaspersky Lab ANZ general manager Margrith Appleby said: “The current skills shortage is a result of a lack of defined career paths. We believe our partnership with Swinburne within their respective faculties in software, engineering, science and technology will ensure the development in training and educational content for a new future of cyber security experts in Australia.”
Kaspersky Lab has previously signed three separate deals with Singapore Institute of Technology, Singapore University of Technology and Design and Temasec Polytechnic.
