The Advanced Engineering Certificate in Cyber Systems Security provides a thorough understanding of the cyber security threats faced by the stand-alone computer systems, networked systems, IT infrastructure, and cyber physical systems having embedded computer systems operated by individuals, small businesses and large enterprises, along with the knowledge required to defend against these threats. Through class room instruction and hands-on lab work, participants learn state-of-the-art techniques necessary for analyzing cyber security risks, and preventing, detecting and recovering from cyber attacks. The program makes use of ODU's multidisciplinary strengths in the fields of Cyber Systems, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering and Modeling and Simulation.
This program is designed both as a complement for students working on graduate degrees and for those personnel working on information and cyber systems used in industry, small businesses, healthcare, government, military and home land security.
Program can be completed in 2 semesters with full-time enrollment, or 2 years with part-time enrollment
This program will teach you to: • Model and analyze threats in cyber/ cyber-physical systems, • Detect emerging threats and mitigation techniques, • Assess vulnerability of software and hardware • Apply big data analytics to detect anomalies and eliminate security threats, • Design network simulation/emulation
Course provides an overview of theory, tools and practice of cyber security and information assurance through prevention, detection and modeling of cyber attacks and recovery from such attacks. Techniques for security modeling, attack modeling, risk analysis and cost-benefit analysis are described to manage the security of cyber systems. Fundamental principles of cyber security and their applications for protecting software and information assets of individual computers and large networked systems are explored. Anatomy of some sample attacks designed to compromise confidentiality, integrity and availability of cyber systems are discussed. Pre- or corequisites: MSIM 510 or permission of the instructor.
This course provides an overview of functioning of cyber systems including how a computer interacts with the outside world. The composition of critical infrastructure and functioning of different engineered systems that form critical infrastructure are discussed. Mutual dependence and interactions between cyber systems and other engineered systems and the resulting security risks are also explored. |Cross-listed with ENMA 670.)
This course focuses on cybersecurity theory, information protection and assurance, and computer systems and networks security. The objectives are to understand the basic security models and concepts, learn fundamental knowledge and tools for building, analyzing, and attacking modern security systems, and gain hands-on experience in cryptographic algorithms, security fundamental principles, and Internet security protocol and standards. Prerequisites: ECE 355 or permission of the instructor.
Students entering the Certificate program in Advanced Engineering - Cyber Systems Security should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
All applicants admitted to the certificate program must have earned a baccalaureate degree in engineering, mathematics, science, or a related STEM field from a regionally-accredited institution or an equivalent degree from a foreign institution. Those whose native language is not English must submit a minimum score of 230 on the computer-based TOEFL or 80 on the TOEFL iBT.
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
