Purpose This degree is an AAS degree program that prepares students with the knowledge and applicable skills necessary for entry-level careers in cybersecurity. Students will acquire foundational knowledge in computer science and information technology, in order to build solution-oriented skills in infrastructure security, enterprise risk and risk management, cloud computing, cryptography, information assurance, digital forensics, penetration testing, and business continuity. Students will apply this knowledge both in a hands-on lab curriculum and through required internships supporting the local community. In addition, this degree will provide the core foundational knowledge to continue on to a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity and related areas for even further opportunities for career advancement.
