Through activities with the Computer Science Club, students will be prepared for specific certification opportunities, including Certified Security Analyst and Certified Ethical Hacker.

Both of these certifications are offered through the EC-Council (International Council of E-Commerce Consultants), the world’s largest cyber security technical certification body.

In order to earn the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification, an individual must pass an exam that encompasses the hacking tools, techniques, and methodologies used by hackers and information security professionals to lawfully hack an organization. A CEH uses these skills to protect the systems they oversee and counter unethical hacking.

The EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) certification is an advanced security certification that builds on the CEH certification. In order to earn this certification, an individual must pass an exam exhibiting their proficiency in conducting penetration testing.
