Oregon Tech offers new cybersecurity degree
This coming fall, the Oregon Institute of Technology will offer Oregon's first bachelor of science degree in cybersecurity. First announced in January, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) approved the degree for fall 2019 enrollment at both Klamath Falls and Portland-Metro campuses.
The degree was created to meet the significant need facing Oregon and the country and provides applicable, hands-on experiences for students
in the changing work-force environment.
Graduates of this program can go on to work as security analysts, security engineers, cryptographers, security architects, security administrators, cryptanalysts, security software developers and security consultants, to name a few.
Security professionals are needed in all industries including public and private businesses, as well as across a multitude of government agencies. Oregon Tech will start accepting applications for cybersecurity immediately with the online degree expected to launch in fall 2020, as well as partnership opportunities with community colleges and others that would be part of the program.
Way to go, Wilsonville High student
