Protect the network! Protect the data! Protect the software!
The growing field of Cybersecurity focuses on the protection and defense of systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks.
Not only will you learn and strategize how best to protect and defend, but our ‘big picture’ approach to cybersecurity will allow you to take courses not only in computer science and technology but also in the humanities and social sciences.
What sets us apart?
- Uniquely prepares students to respond to cyber-attack and security breaches by using a super realistic virtual environment, housed in the Maine Cyber Range facility and powered by Cyberbit Range technology. This first-of-its-kind facility in New England allows students to gain real career experience by combating mock attacks.
- Foundational coursework in information technology, programming, risk assessment, and supply chain security will produce career-ready graduates with a broad, yet refined skill set. As a result, our program provides you with the skills required to work in small, medium, and large business settings.
- Our coursework is delivered sequentially to ensure a strong IT knowledge base prior to learning defense strategies.
