Cyber Security w/Computer Science & Math Certificate
Cybercrime related issues especially impact the State of Florida because a significant part of the state's economic development comes from tourism, international banking and high-tech industries. However, the number of scientists, engineers and experts with special skills in Cyber Security or with a Master’s degree/certificate in Cyber Security is not on track with the need for such experts. In fact, high-tech industries from different divisions such as Information Technology, Financial Services, Digital Media or Interactive Entertainment, and Aviation and Aerospace can significantly benefit from this program, (i.e., companies like IBM, Symantec, Boeing and Lockheed Martin within Florida's high-tech corridor to name a few).
The Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and the Department of Mathematical Sciences in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science, due to their extensive expertise and facilities, are uniquely positioned to offer a joint certificate program in Cyber Security with two tracks: Computer Science (CS) and Mathematics (Math).
