Master of Cybersecurity Engineering

Rapid growth in the reliance of critical and personal information on cyber infrastructure has made us more vulnerable to cyber threats and cyberattacks. This master's program will educate students with techniques, tools, analysis, policies, and methodologies to solve complex cyber security problems of relevance to the engineering field.

There is a strong demand for security professionals in industries with the increase in cyber threats to their systems. This program will prepare students with extensive knowledge in cyber security, cyber-physical systems, cloud computing security, network engineering and cyber security for smart grid power systems, security vision systems, coding theory, and wireless secure communications.

Admission to the Master of Cyber Security Engineering program normally requires a bachelor of science degree in electrical or computer engineering from an institution accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). Deficiency courses will be required for students who have not taken prerequisite or equivalent courses of the following: ECE 242 and MATH 374. A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special examinations administered by the department.
