Patricia R’s Answer

Kota - As you receive suggestions about universities that offer what you seek, in terms of learning about cyber security, keep in mind a couple useful points:

1) The world of cyber-security changes rapidly, very rapidly. Whatever course of study you choose should offer you the training to be flexible, because in the time it takes you to complete an undergraduate degree, what you learned in your first year or two will most likely be obsolete or on the decline.

2) Although most individuals offering cyber-security set-ups for their clients *hope* it is preventative, many activities are undertaken to leak the holes where a hacker has already penetrated. Therefore, a lot of creative problem-solving is happening on-site. Be prepared to encounter problems your academic classroom practices did not anticipate.

3) Seek out ways to improve your skills at solving complex cyber-challenges, or improve your abilities to recognize cyber-problems when you see them. You might do this by learning how to design, and write code for Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs) - or simple ones.

Kota - My apologies for using the wrong word. I wrote... "to *leak* the holes... What a blunder! We don't want to leak holes, we want to block them or close them! Proofreading my paragraphs twice didn't catch it; I should do it once, but pay closer attention. PRK. Patricia R Kerr

In my experience, I found two that are great for online or remote capability. Colorado Technical University and Western Governors University. I will say this, do not rely upon the instructor or the college to provide you all the answers. You must work hard and study hard to pass the courses and to prepare for future certifications.

Saurabh’s Answer

The best way to acquire Cyber Security skills are by first qualification and then on the job training and experience. Not many schools offer Bachelors or Masters of Cyber Security - most of them offers via Bachelors or Masters of Computer Science, concentration in Cyber Security. One of the best programs I know is from John Hopkins and they do offer Masters of Science in Cyber Security. Another good university is Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) that offers Bachelors with concentration in Security and Privacy and Masters with Privacy Engineering. These are some good schools from US.

Besides US, in Europe ETH Zurich offers Masters in Cybersecurity.

So it depends, where you want to go to your school and narrow your search based on that. Rule of thumb - most colleges offers cyber security via Computer Science Department.

Good Luck!!

Hi Kota,

Glad to hear of your interest in Cyber Security, it's definitely a field that will continue to grow in the future. I live in the Washington DC area and one of the best Computer Science schools in the area is University of Maryland - College Park. As others have mentioned, having a computer science degree is a great basis for a Cyber Security career but there are also many universities that are now offering Cyber Security degrees. One such place that offers a cybersecurity degree that you can attend globally is the University of Maryland Global Campus. I suggest you check out their website for more information on the program and admissions requirements. Like all STEM fields, pre-college courses in Math and Science are key to preparation. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and much success in your university studies!
