Cyber Security Engineering

The engineered systems that power our modern society are increasingly susceptible to digital threats. Water and energy systems, transportation and logistics, banking and finance, manufacturing, national defense, government, and more all depend on safe and secure cyber infrastructure. Today, there is growing demand for highly trained engineering professionals who design hardware and software applications that are resilient to cyber-attacks. This versatile degree path prepares future leaders who design and create robust safeguards for complex, interconnected systems.
