About

With the vast amount of sensitive data now stored in the digital universe it’s critical that we secure and protect it from malicious interests. For vital computer networks and electronic infrastructures, Cybersecurity experts stand as the last and most effective line of defense against such attacks. The Cybersecurity MSc program is offered at New York University.

Overview

The curriculum of the Cybersecurity MSc program from New York University is rooted in the belief that theory and research must translate into real-world solutions. To this end, we have created the NYU Center for Cybersecurity, and the Offensive Security, Incident Response, and Internet Security Lab (OSIRIS) dedicated to training the current and future generations of cybersecurity professionals. 

NYU Tandon has a distinguished history of research and education in the field of cybersecurity, and our classes are taught by internationally known experts. We’ve been designated an NSA Center of Excellence in Information Assurance, a Center of Excellence in Research, and a Center of Excellence in Cyber Operations. 

Career opportunities

The cybersecurity field is expected to generate many new jobs over the next decade as industry and government continue to emphasize safe data and information systems. As a graduate of the program, you’ll be ready for a career as a developer of security products, security application programmer, security analyst, and penetration tester. You can also pursue work as a security researcher, vulnerability analyst, or security architect, or continue your studies toward a doctorate.
