Our interdisciplinary telecom program prepares students to be network security specialists. This track provides training in cyber security, where each student learns how to manage the data security of critical electronic information and communication systems. Telecom network security students gain the skills to develop, build and maintain secure and cost-effective computer systems in the private and public sectors.

The classes offered by CU Boulder’s ITP program use an applied approach with lab-based, hands-on assignments where students build, test and operate IT security systems and devices. Our online telecommunications degree allows working professionals the flexibility they need to accomplish their professional goals from nearly anywhere.
