Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering

B.S. in Cybersecurity Engineering


Cybersecurity engineers identify threats and vulnerabilities in software, networks, and other systems. They apply their skills to design, develop, and implement high-tech solutions to defend against hacking, malware and ransomware, insider threats and all types of cyber crime. In addition to designing and developing safeguards, cybersecurity engineers continually monitor their systems and update them when necessary to prevent zero-day threats (from new and novel malware) and other emerging cybercriminal activity. For companies, cybersecurity engineers protect both information and the overall bottom line. Because of this, cybersecurity engineers are vital to the success of the organizations they serve.
