Cyber Security Certificate


Vulnerabilities are abundant within the cyber world, as underlying computer, network, and information systems and associated architecture are often not protected adequately. This certificate program provides knowledge to engineers on spotting issues and designing solutions before potential damage becomes reality.  Through this program, engineers will learn to architect, design, implement, and test systems that can defend, detect, and recover from cyberattacks.  Engineers will learn to build cyber security capabilities into the systems to increase their trustworthiness so that we can rely on both everyday systems and those we use for critical infrastructure.
