The Computer Security track can be used to satisfy the track requirements of the CIS Major.
Tracks highlight areas of specialization within the department and guide student elective choices. Each track has an approved list of CIS courses, available from the computer science office or the department website. Tracks may also include recommended science and math courses; some include a minor in another field.
The Computer Security track provides a foundation in topics and concepts relating to the security of computer systems and networks. It prepares students to work as security analysts and provides a highly desirable skill set for all employers, ranging from software engineers to administrators, in both the private and government sectors. It also provides a foundation for further graduate study and research in security. Course work encompasses a strong understanding of computer systems and networks and their security, and can be tailored to a more theoretical or more applied focus.
