Cybersecurity - U147

Targeted population: Students with majors in the entire general university population (other than those offered by the Computer Science department) with a keen interest in Cyber-Security. Students must have strong analytical and logical skills.

Purpose: The increasing volume and sophistication of cyber security threats - including targeted phishing scams, data theft, and other online vulnerabilities - demand that we remain vigilant about securing our systems and information. More and more companies actively seek graduates with the expertise in cyber security and bemoan the scarcity of graduates with these key skills. This CUGS would be very attractive to many employers looking to keep their companies safe in the new cyber-world.

Educational Goals: To develop graduates with a technical foundation in cyber security focused on the protection and defense of computer systems. Students will be able to articulate the core concepts of information assurance, asset protection, and cyber defense. Also, this CUGS can develop graduates who are able to identify, analyze, and remediate security breaches.

Requirements: Students seeking this CUGS will be required to complete a total of 4 courses:
