Course info


The Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering program at the University of Washington Bothell prepares students to operate as cybersecurity professionals by combining advanced studies in computer science techniques with cutting-edge cybersecurity technologies and practices. Graduates are prepared for the modern security workforce; ready to protect and defend cyber systems with hands-on experience in ethical penetration testing, wireless security, network security, cryptography, risk management and security of emerging technologies. Students will pair practical skills with theoretical research in a culminating project or thesis.

Designed to meet the needs of working professionals, students can work on the degree requirements at their own pace with options between full and part time enrollment. The MS in Cybersecurity Engineering classes meet in the evening, typically twice a week.

Applicants to the MS in Cybersecurity are expected to have a bachelor’s degree in computer science or equivalent. For those with degrees in other fields, we recommend the Graduate Certificate in Software Design & Development (GCSDD). The GCSDD is a series of six graduate level courses that build upon students’ knowledge from introductory programming classes. The GCSDD can help students meet the admission requirement for the MS in Cybersecurity Engineering at UW Bothell. Courses are taught in the evening, meeting twice a week.
