Cybercrime-related issues especially impact the State of Florida because a significant part of the state's economic development comes from tourism, international banking and high-tech industries. The number of scientists, engineers, and experts needed with special skills in cybersecurity exceeds the number available. The Cyber Security certificate provides opportunities for graduate students to expand their knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the cybersecurity field. Due to their extensive expertise and facilities, the departments of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences have jointly designed the Cyber Security certificate. This 12-credit certificate program has two tracks: Computer Science (CS) and Mathematics (Math).
The Cyber Security certificate with a track in Mathematics will be granted to a student who completes four 3-credit courses as follows:
Open to students who have a bachelor's degree in mathematics or in a related field and a GPA of at least 3.0.
