UVU offers graduate certificate in cybersecurity [Deseret News (UT)]
(Deseret News (UT) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) OREM - The State Board of Regents has approved a new cybersecurity graduate certificate at Utah Valley University. The program will start this fall.
The post-baccalaureate graduate certificate will provide students with advanced technical and managerial knowledge of cybersecurity. To facilitate the certificate, several specialized courses will be created.
Courses will cover topics including advanced technical studies, managing cybersecurity operations and understanding how cybersecurity affects the global community.
UVU will be the only university in Utah to offer a cybersecurity graduate certificate, according to a news release from the university.
In 2012, UVU was awarded a $3 million grant by the U.S. Department of Labor to create the Cybersecurity Career Pathways program.
"The program helps prepare individuals for industry-standard certifications and literally hundreds of new and existing positions in these growing fields," said Michael Savoie, dean of UVU's College of Technology and Computing.
Students entering the certificate program will be required to have either a bachelor's degree in information systems, information technology or computer science, or a bachelor's degree in any discipline combined with two years of technology-related work experience.
UVU currently offers a one-year certificate in network administration, an associate in applied science in information technology, a bachelor of science in information technology with emphasis in computer forensics and security, and a bachelor of science in information technology in network administration and security.
