The degree program in Information Technology and Cyber Security is a blend of IT and Cyber Security and it is designed to prepare graduates who wish to start their career as an Information Technology and Cyber Security Specialist in a fast-growing industry. The field of information technology continues to expand; the skills of an IT professional will always be an employable asset.

Security violations, data breaches, and privacy failures are an ever-growing threat to businesses and individuals. Through classroom theory and hands-on projects in our diploma program, students will learn how to identify, analyze, and mitigate threats to internal IT systems and/or networks. Students will explore the systems, tools, and concepts used to minimize the risk to an organization’s cyberspace, and the standards and procedures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems. As one of the world’s fastest growing technology fields, the demand for IT and Cyber Security professionals has never been greater.
