Overview

Purpose

The focus of the Cybersecurity - Computer Science program of the University of Alabama Huntsville is on technological knowledge at the most in depth levels, so that graduates of this program will be able to address the challenges that are at the forefront of national security and commercial security in the cyber domain.

Graduates of this program will be able to create new software solutions to new cybersecurity problems. They will be able to work to protect government and commercial sites against Advanced Persistent Threats, that is, very capable and well-funded attackers that are supported by foreign governments and/or organized crime, and in the event of any attack, to trace the attack back to the perpetrators. They will be able to work in digital forensics for law enforcement agencies to find digital evidence of crime and to bring criminals to justice. Also, graduates from this program will be able to work for agencies of the U.S. government to take action against enemies of the U.S., including the creation of zero day exploits (that is, exploiting a previously unknown vulnerability).
