Cybersecurity BS Degree | Michigan Technological University

Demand for cybersecurity experts has never been greater.

Cloud computing, e-commerce, remote healthcare, autonomous cars and buildings. Our
world is increasingly reliant on cyber-based technologies, systems, networks, and
devices, and the safe, secure access to personal data. Your career in cybersecurity
will make an impact. Every day, hackers and cyber criminals launch new, more sophisticated
computer viruses, malware, and scams that threaten the data our society relies on.
In fact, it is estimated that cybercrime costs the global economy $600 billion a year.

What Is Cybersecurity?

Develop Next Generation Cyber Skills

“The best part of Computing[MTU] is the community. Everyone I’ve met is helpful and
welcoming and I don’t feel out of place at all, even though I switched majors mid-semester.”

Cooper Rellis, Cybersecurity

Acquire theoretical knowledge and practical know-how to strategically assess, plan,
design, and implement effective cybersecurity defenses.

Learn best practices and techniques for software development, data assets design,
and the management and protection of valuable computing infrastructure.

Develop trusted software systems in an enterprise team environment. And you’ll understand
the social, ethical, legal, and policy aspects of cybersecurity.

The MTU RedTeam

The MTU RedTeam, a student organization that promotes a security-driven mindset among the student
population, provides a community for those wishing to learn more about information
security. In spring 2021, the RedTeam competed in the National Cyber League (NCL)
capture-the-flag (CTF) team competition and placed third overall, and tied for first
in score (defeating more than 900 teams from across the country). NCL competitions
are a great way to gain experience in cybersecurity tools and boost your resume. Read
