Cybersecurity—MS

A National Priority

Trusted software engineering. Critical infrastructure protection. Network security management. Cybersecurity is a broad field and a national priority. The cybersecurity sector is projected to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $175 billion by 2020.

The Cybersecurity master’s program at Michigan Tech answers the demand with a collaborative program through the departments of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the College of Computing. Students develop a unique focus for the careers—and the future—they want to create.
