I am a cyber security student and currently finishing my second year in 2021. After several attempts applying for placement in cyber security, I was accepted by one company to do my one year placement as ICT Engineer. I am expected to come back to complete my uni studies after the placement is done, extending expected uni completion to 2 years. I am just worried about doing my placement as ICT engineer when all I wanted was a placement in cyber security like pen test. My question is, will it benefit me in my cyber security career on the long run if I do this placement or I should look to more cyber security concerntrated placement or just continue university to complete the studies without a placement year?

I would expect any placement in the computing sector is better than none!
