Designing the System is No Longer Enough — Are You Prepared?

Anyone designing computer systems must have a firm grasp on all aspects of cybersecurity. 

— Bradley Cain, Senior Architect, F5 Networks

Engineering leaders know a system's design is only as strong as its security. Now there's an online program specifically architected to arm you with the right skills. The online Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering helps you master skills taught in other ECE programs, as well as provides you with the critical insight to secure, protect and implement the systems you create. This is one of the first online programs to present advanced electrical and computer engineering concepts and application through a cybersecurity lens.

Through a combination of foundational theory and hands-on exercises, you'll learn how information processing intersects with cybersecurity, and gain the skills to deliver effective and secure design. With these skills, you'll be among an elite group of engineers ready to tackle this new challenge in the field, and stay ahead of the curve.

Power system grids, processing and plant control, along with SCADA are just as vulnerable as the banking and credit card world – with different and more detrimental outcomes possible.

— Thomas McCormick, President and CEO, American Electrical, Inc.

Program Topics Include:
