Cyber and Information Security
Capitol Tech Opportunities
Here's some of the ways that we prepare and connect you with the field of cyber & information security
Washington, D.C. — Cyber Central
Learn in the heart of the Washington D.C. Beltway — home to 350% more cyber security professionals than the rest of the US combined. Pursue work at U.S. Cyber Command, the National Security Agency, the Defense Information Systems Agency, Pentagon, CIA and hundreds of private contractors.
Your first two courses prepare you for the CompTIA Security+ exam. By sophomore year, you’ll be ready to pass industry certification exams such as A+, Network+, Certified Ethical Hacker exam, Certified Information Systems Security Professional exam and Security + exam.
Defeat simulated cyberattacks in our Cyber Lab. This lab has an advisory board with members from corporations such as Lockheed Martin and SAIC, as well as other universities such as Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the University of Maryland.
Join our cyber team and work with other students to defend and attack secure systems. You’ll compete against other schools and improve your skills with every challenge. Last year, the team competed in 15 cyber challenges.
