Computer Science/Information Assurance Track, BS

CYBER SAFETY Maria Shah talks about the criminology component in the Computer Science Department. Students are taught about securing data and networking.

This track prepares students for jobs such as network administrator, information security specialist, or network security manager.

Students are required to take a course in which they must put to practical use what they have learned. This may be done using team projects in a single three-credit course. However, we encourage students to consider taking a six- to eight-month paid internship to get the true flavor of applying their computing knowledge to industry.

We try to set up internships with the defense industry or the government to provide an opportunity for students to use their information assurance skills. Students are also required to take a minor in Criminology. We foresee our graduates working with law enforcement personnel or in security areas, and they need a knowledge of law enforcement to be effective.

Enrollment and Graduation Statistics  

The Information Assurance track currently has 71 students enrolled in the program.  In 2015, fifteen (15) students completed the program received their B.S. degree in Computer Science/Information Assurance track.
