More Information


The Cybersecurity Certificate program of study is for students who are interested in joining the cybersecurity workforce. This program aims to prepare its students to become a well-rounded cybersecurity specialist, not only with must-have technical skills required for securing software, systems, and networks but also with in-depth knowledge and core practices in incident responses. Students will learn to conduct their roles with ethical responsibility specific to their business environments, have the ability to communicate with people at different levels in an organization, and engage in continuous education to deal with new threats and vulnerabilities evolved with technological advances. A student can pursue the certificate independently or, with little additional credit hours, jointly with a B.S in Computer Science or B.S. in Software Engineering degree.
