The school is piloting a high-intensity online program for non-traditional candidates for its MS degree in cyber securityor computer science. It’s designed to prepare non-computer science majors who already hold a bachelor’s degree with the knowledge they need to enter Tandon’s research-based programs within 15 weeks.
At the baccalaureate level, students in computer science and engineering minor in cyber security, working closely with master’s degree students. Those who complete the minor are highly sought by security firms, government, and technology and financial companies, Memon says.
NYU Tandon also offers a Security Management Track for those studying for a master’s degree in either cyber security or technology management programs.
In addition, an MS in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy for Executives was just announced by Tandon and the NYU School of Law. The 30-credit, one-year cross-discipline executive management program is intended for experienced professionals from a range of backgrounds.
The program incorporates both online courses and blended-learning modules. “Cyber security—both prevention and response—frequently requires coordination between public- and private-sector organizations and expertise in technology, law, and policy,” Memon says. “This program will create managers with the integrated expertise needed to play a leadership role in the field.”
Curriculum: Courses in hardware security, reverse engineering, security management, cloud security, biometrics and trust-risk-deception
Placement: Master’s students can choose a specialization in the National Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cyber Operations, which makes them eligible to apply for the CAE summer intern program.
