Cybersecurity MS, BS/MEEP, 4+1, CERT

Ensuring the security of the world’s and our own nation’s computers, systems, and networks is a key national security challenge.  Thus, establishing high-quality Cybersecurity educational programs is a top national priority as well as a regional imperative since trained Cybersecurity graduates are of critical importance to several large employer groups in this region.

The Cybersecurity master’s program is structured to enable professionals to gain advanced training in this field.  Unlike other programs that are solely focused on IT security, this program emphasizes design of secure software and systems, security analytics, and secure business systems.  It will train individuals that have a traditional background in engineering, computer science, information systems, or related fields to have strong security skills enabling them to develop new secure systems and/or software, to exploit analytics for security purposes, or to develop and manage secure business systems.  Thus graduates of this program will be skilled in the latest theories and practices required to address the most challenging cybersecurity issues facing the world today.

The 4+1 Cybersecurity Program provides the opportunity for talented students to complete a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s Degree in less time.
