Each MSIT student is provided the opportunity to utilize their electives to also receive a graduate certificate in cybersecurity. Our curriculum is built to be focused on “data-driven” in order to give you the tools needed to analyze and fully understand the systems.
Our Cybersecurity Certificate is supported by the National Security Agency Grant and offers a $5,000 scholarship for some qualified applicants*.
As a MSIT student you are able to use 4 of your 6 elective classes to obtain your Cybersecurity certificate alongside your master’s degree. The curriculum for the Data Driven Cybersecurity Certificate is comprised of:
• IT7020 Principles of Cybersecurity
• IT7075 Data Driven Cybersecurity
• IT7021 Enterprise Network Forensics
• IT7071 Machine Learning and Data Mining for IT
