Students in the cybersecurity program will learn the appropriate tools, techniques, policies, and technologies required to identify, analyze, mitigate, and communicate the risks of computer systems. The major helps prepare students for careers in Cybersecurity, Networks, and Information systems security. The curricular provide a rich Cybersecurity experience which aligns with the knowledge units required by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
In addition, Cybersecurity overlaps well and has its foundation in Computer Science – allowing many students to minor or double major in these two related fields.
