The Cybersecurity program provides students with the skills required to find employment in the rapidly changing field of Cybersecurity, one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Students have the opportunity to develop, defend, and protect networks and information systems against cyber-attacks while managing hardware, operating systems, local and wide-area networks, enterprise security, computer forensics, vulnerability assessment, security compliance, and information assurance. Once students have developed the foundational Information Technology (IT) skills, students directly apply classroom theory to the hands-on configuration of hardware, including: workstations, servers, virtual servers, switches, routers, VPNs, firewalls and other relevant equipment. Many of the courses prepare students for industry certifications from organizations such as: Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco, and the Linux Professional Institute. After completing the program, work with one of our placement specialists to get your foot in the door utilizing your newly gained skills and certifications. If you are already employed, enhance your skills with a customized plan developed just for you by working one-on-one with a faculty advisor.
