About the Inter-ACE

Our Goals

The main goals of the Inter-ACE Programme are:

  • Attract new students to cyber security
  • Help them build a network of personal connections
  • Develop new training materials for undergraduate teaching of security

The long-term objective of the the Inter-ACE is not merely to reward excellence in cyber security, but to build a new generation of skilled cyber defenders. An important goal is to get the competitors to mingle and build friendships with their like-minded colleagues so that, in ten years’ time, they’ll already know the CISOs and national security experts who attended top universities at the same time as then.

 

Qualifying Universities

The Inter-ACE competition is open to teams of students studying at any of the fourteen Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR). Plus, for the first time in 2018, eight universities which offer NCSC Certified Degrees and three universities which performed strongly at the ACE-CSR assessment panel.

34 teams from 18 universities took part in the Inter-ACE 2018.
