As a greater percentage of people worldwide use computers, there is a marked increase in cyber security concerns. Motivated through discussions with the National Security Agency (NSA), Drexel University's MS in Cyber security program prepares students with both academic and practical training to be competitive in today's rapidly changing technical landscape. The program provides deeply technical and specialized training and enables graduates to understand, adapt, and develop new techniques to confront emerging threats in cyber security. Administered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the College of Engineering, this program is interdisciplinary in nature and includes courses from Drexel University's College of Computing and Informatics. Topics covered include computer networking, probability concepts, techniques for analyzing algorithms, dependable software design, reverse software engineering, intrusion detection, ethics, privacy, confidentiality, authenticity, and social networking. The program offers multidisciplinary "research rotations" as an independent study component of the degree program and a graduate co-op option for credit.
