Interested in the challenge and excitement at the leading edge of the world’s most critical security threat?

Whether it’s hacking, identity theft, viruses, phishing, malware, money laundering, espionage or any other form of cyber crime, our unique undergraduate degree programs in Cybersecurity and Network Engineering and our graduate program in Cybersecurity Defense, offered by the Information Technology Department, will get you on the front lines of this critical and fast-growing industry segment.

From multi-national corporations to local small businesses, cybersecurity defense is an integral piece of an organization’s strategy. Information and the technology infrastructure it resides on are two of an organization’s most valuable assets and these are often continuously threatened or under active attack. Successful defense and protection of these assets requires a trained cybersecurity professional who not only understands the technical aspects, but also is aware of strategic business interests.
