The issue of cybersecurity continues to be a major issue for both individuals and large corporations. For businesses it is no longer a question of if a cyber-attack will occur but rather when, and as such the demand for qualified IT security professionals has risen exponentially.
Our program has been designed to give students the skills needed to meet this increased demand, including how to handle security incidents, identify new and existing threats, and determining methods to minimize them.
In the first two years, students will focus on completing the university’s General Education Program (42 US / 84 ECTS credits), which introduces five thematic areas: communication, data and quantitative literature, scientific inquiry, arts and humanities, and social sciences. In the third and fourth years, students will focus on topics relevant to their major.
- Program length: 2 years / 4 semesters.
- Credits needed to earn the degree: 48 US / 96 ECTS credits
- GPA needed to earn the degree: 2.0 or higher
- Security Architect
- Security Director
- Vulnerability Assessor
These and many other challenging, satisfying, and lucrative opportunities await you upon graduation.
