Graduate Students

Graduate students can pursue the following degrees: MS in Computer Science, MS in Cyber Security, PhD in Computer Science and PhD in Computer Engineering.

Cyber security skills are in high demand, yet supply is lacking. Industry estimates that over a million cyber security jobs worldwide remain unfilled, with more than 200,000 of those in the United States. Graduates of TU’s M.S. in Cyber Security are well equipped to meet the demand and serve in intellectually stimulating and personally rewarding roles that strengthen national and global security. Graduates of the program master the theory, concepts, and techniques of information assurance and network defense in real-world environments. The M.S. in Cyber Security program serves students with backgrounds in computer science as well as other disciplines. For more information, visit the degree information page.
