Dr Biju Issac has been in the field of higher education since 1995. In his first job, he worked as a project assistant in Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India working on a Tomography research project. After an initial post-grad university teaching experience in Madras University and others in India for around five years, he relocated to Malaysia. There he worked with two Australian universities, the University of Wollongong for 2 years and the Swinburne University of Technology for 8 years.

He moved into Teesside University in 2012 and is currently the course leader of BSc (Hons) Computer Security and Networks. He is a member of the Digital Futures Institute and works with the "Machine Intelligence' research group. 

He has done Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Electronics and Communication Engineering and Master of Computer Applications (MCA) with honours. He has also finished PhD in Networking and Mobile Communications in 2008.

Dr Issac is research active and has authored more than 90 refereed publications as conference papers, journal papers and book chapters. He is in the technical programme committee of many international IEEE conferences and on the editorial board of international journals. He is the Associate Editor of "IEEE Access" which is a multidisciplinary open access journal and the Editorial board member of IET Wireless Sensor Systems journal.

His professional memberships are: Chartered Engineer (CEng), Senior IEEE member, Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA), IET member, IAENG member and Senior IACSIT member.
