MS Cyber Security Engineering

Course Description

Master of Science in Cyber Security
The Master of Science degree in Cyber Security Engineering (MS CSE) offers a comprehensive approach to the Secure Development Lifecycle. Curriculum within the program focuses on three primary facets of cybersecurity: protection, detection and correction. Graduates with the MS in Cyber Security Engineering will have the skills and knowledge to protect pre-existing infrastructures, detect intrusions or abuses and respond to attacks in such a way that minimizes the losses and facilitates re-engineering information infrastructures to eliminate vulnerabilities. Graduates will be ready for careers within industry such as Cyber Security Analyst, Cyber Security Engineer, and many other career paths within the field of software engineering that require secure development lifecycle training. Courses are offered in the evening to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals. The curriculum of the MS in Cyber Security Engineering is designed to prepare students for Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) certification.

The Master of Science in Cyber Security Engineering degree curriculum operates around three basic principles:

- Protection – hardening our information infrastructures to make them more resistant to attack

- Detection – since no amount of protection can provide 100% security, detection of intrusions by outsiders or abuses of privilege by insiders becomes critical

- Correction – how to respond to attacks to minimize losses and facilitate re-engineering our information infrastructures to eliminate vulnerabilities being exploited and resume operations at a higher level of assurance.

In addition to these processes and the enabling technologies that accompany them, students learn how to make decisions regarding investments of scarce resources in information assurance, using cost-benefit analyses to support management decisions. The combination of advanced studies in computer science techniques and methods with the practical engineering considerations associated with cyber-security theory and practice provide students with a unique combination of skills to enable them to become cyber-security practitioners and leaders.
