Program Overview:

Cybersecurity (CYBR) is an emerging, rapidly expanding science that addresses problems in the fundamental understanding of the design, development, implementation, and life-cycle support of secure information systems. The need for secure information systems has become a paramount concern as the computer-enabled, Internet-connected, digital-based global society of the 21st century emerges. The lack of adequately secure information systems has been cited as one of the likely impediments to the emergence of the digital society. Cybersecurity (CYBR) is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major that will prepare students for positions in government, industry, and research as well as provide them with the foundation necessary for success in graduate programs.
