Minor in Cybersecurity

The eighteen-credit minor in cybersecurity is open to all Michigan Tech students. The minor provides students with opportunities to:

  • Deepen their understanding of cybersecurity concepts and principles.
  • Learn offensive and defensive cybersecurity techniques.
  • Develop professional skills to apply cybersecurity knowledge to the general area of their majors.

How to Enroll in a Minor

A minor allows a student to specialize in a discipline outside their major. To pursue a minor, you must first be enrolled in a bachelor's degree program and file a Curriculum Add/Drop Form with the Registrar's Office to declare the minor. We recommend that you begin your minor studies as early as possible in your academic career. For questions, please contact the academic advisor in your department or CNSA faculty.
