Master of Engineering in the Field of Cybersecurity Analytics

The master of engineering (MEng) in the field of cybersecurity analytics is an interdisciplinary program that draws courses from departments across SEAS: computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and engineering management and systems engineering. The purpose of the MEng in cybersecurity analytics is to address technical challenges in the rapidly changing field of cybersecurity. In this program, students will explore topics related to protecting critical infrastructure including secure systems and hardware design, cyber resilience, intrusion detection, and defensive cybersecurity operations. The program is designed for students with a technical background but is accessible to those with relevant nontechnical degrees as well.
