What will I learn?

The dependence of public, private, not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations on cyber systems for the security, safety and privacy of the individuals they serve and the enterprises they operate increases as the digital age advances.

As society becomes more and more connected, and as the smart systems continue to evolve, there is a clear need for engineers in all the fields to develop a good understanding of cybersecurity principles. For example, a biomedical engineer needs to understand the cybersecurity implications of medical devices and privacy of medical records and a civil engineer needs to understand the cybersecurity implications of connected and smart communities.

We offer a Master of Engineering in Engineering with a specialization in cybersecurity to address this need for an engineering workforce well versed in cybersecurity concerns.
