Step beyond traditional IT roles to design, execute and evaluate solutions that can stand up to today’s increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.

The University of Delaware’s Cybersecurity master’s program is structured to enable professionals to gain advanced training in this field. Unlike other programs that are solely focused on IT security, this program emphasizes design of secure software and systems, security analytics, and secure business systems. We train individuals that have a traditional background in engineering, computer science, information systems, or related fields to have strong security skills that enable them to develop new secure systems and/or software, to exploit analytics for security purposes, or to develop and manage secure business systems. Graduates of this program are skilled in the latest theories and practices required to address the most challenging cybersecurity issues facing the world today.
