Be a Leader in Cyber Security
The career opportunities for cybersecurity leaders, experts and engineers are growing:
- Cybersecurity positions represented approximately 10 percent of all technology-related positions opened during 2015.
- More than 20 new disciplines have been created, ranging from specialized technical engineers to new cyber risk management positions.
- Many of these roles did not exist even three or four years ago, and there is a need for more trained professionals to step into these roles.
To pursue the Cyber Security graduate minor students must be enrolled in a University of Minnesota master’s degree program. Some courses are open to non-degree seeking students. Contact our admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
