Today’s increasingly connected digital world has created an Internet/data-dependent society. A society that has grown to need and have a shortage of cyber security program graduates. Our nation needs more highly skilled Network Engineers who can be responsible for the secure design, implementation and maintenance of our networked systems. We simply need more cyber security graduates, coders, software engineers and leaders who can master the administrative level of cyber security and become proficient in the battle ground of both networking and IT systems. This cyber security degree program is focused on the network engineering within cyber security and will provide graduates with a well-rounded knowledge base from which to lead the building of secure networks. A strong foundational knowledge of code, network and systems engineering concepts form the base on which advanced topics are built. Key concepts such as routing, switching, server operating systems, email systems, IP Telephony, wireless and virtualization will be explored in detail.
Information systems and the need for cyber security vary significantly between industry verticals, service providers, mobile data, consumer and business applications. You will investigate the inner workings of each of these network engineering arenas in detail with a focus on cyber security during your Network Engineering degree journey.
