We are developing the future leaders who will combat the latest cyber threats, engineer and expand wireless networks, influence policies from privacy to broadband, and create the next generation of technological innovations.
Computers are becoming embedded in all emerging technologies and systems, and therefore threat landscapes are constantly evolving and exponentially increasing. The need for cybersecurity and security-minded professionals is likewise expanding, and there is a drastic shortage of qualified experts, particularly in leadership roles.
Technology does not advance without cybersecurity or policy. Cybersecurity is not effective unless technology and policy are considered. Smart policy and business practices require an understanding of both technology and cybersecurity.
TCP Career Outlook
TCP provides students the technical depth they need to secure their first job in technological and cybersecurity industries, along with the interdisciplinary expertise in business and policy that quickly accelerates their careers with promotions to senior managerial and C-suite executive roles.
