The MSCS is designed to provide the necessary background and fundamental knowledge in computer architecture and networks to design and implement secure systems. The program consists of a set of core subjects, a sequence of advanced courses in 6 domain areas, and a capstone project or thesis. The program will require 9 semester hours of core courses, 15 semester hours of advanced course work, and a 6 semester hour capstone project or thesis, for a total of 30 semester hours.
The MSCS program will include core courses in computer network security, host computer security, and information security, providing the theoretical basis for understanding the source of vulnerabilities in computation and information systems while exposing students to state-of-the-art tools and techniques for identifying threats related to networking infrastructure, computer systems and the data and information flowing through the system. With this broad theoretical foundation in place, students can select courses from domain areas that provide both depth and breadth of coverage across a wide variety of topics in cyber security. The curriculum for the MSCS program blends contemporary knowledge with advanced research concepts to deliver a cutting edge program.
