Please suggest some open universities that offer bachelor's and master's degrees in security
engineering through correspondence courses. I reside in India.
Alas, I don't have access to any "master catalog" of global open universities that offer bachelor's or master's degrees with a strong security component, either in engineering, computer science, IS/IT or other likely programs where such degrees are likely to find a home. That said, I'd urge you to use your favorite search engine and look for such programs in India (where I know next to nothing about what's available online there).
Here in the U.S., programs worth investigating (and some do require minimal on-campus attendance and so may not meet your requirements), include:
- Capella University
- University of Phoenix online
- Kaplan College
- Homeland security specialist program
- Computer Science Degrees
- DeVry University Online
- Norwich University
- Iowa State University
A half-hour to an hour spent using your favorite search engine will surely show you hundreds of options, as a similar search at google.com just did for me.
Good luck with your pursuits.
