The Technology, Cybersecurity and Policy Program combines courses in business, computer science, cybersecurity, management and leadership, networking, and policy with hands-on, team-based learning that encourages innovative research, inquiry, and exploration. TCP offers many programs and degree options for current or prospective CU undergraduate and graduate students.

Graduate Degree Programs

The Master of Science in Technology, Cybersecurity and Policy degree is a two-year program that allows students to immerse themselves in topics such as networking, policy & law, ethics, cybersecurity, and entrepreneurship & economics. Students may choose one of two options: a coursework-only option where the student completes a two-sequence research and capstone project course, or a thesis option where the student researches, writes and defends a master’s thesis. This curriculum is designed for students to gain a comprehensive background in TCP while specializing in topics that align with the students' interests. TCP students learn traditional networking and programming skills by spending hundreds of hours in state-of-the-art laboratories mastering the operation of complex commercial technologies.

The Professional Masters in Network Engineering degree (curriculum available soon; admissions beginning Spring 2020) is the right choice for those seeking a technical education and focus in network communication technologies.

TCP has partnerships with several other programs and departments to offer Dual Degrees - the MS in TCP can strategically accelerate the career of any Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Juris Doctoral (JD) candidate at CU Boulder.

Undergraduate Degree Programs

TCP offers a Bachelors-Accelerated Masters in Technology, Cybersecurity and Policy degree. Undergraduate students at CU Boulder can take TCP courses and add a fifth year to earn an accelerated MS in TCP on top of their BS degree, depending on their undergraduate major. We are actively seeking programs to collaborate with to expand our Bachelors-Masters programs. Also, we hope to soon be unveiling certificate and minor programs to complement any undergraduate degree - all of these programs will offer students electives and degree-relevant course options for a professional advantage in their future careers within a tech-heavy world.

Other New Programs in the Works

PhD and additional Professional Master degrees will be launched soon. TCP is actively increasing the opportunities we provide to current and prospective CU Boulder students, foreign nationals, military service members, professionals, and veterans. Through on-site and/or distance-learning courses, anyone can easily access one course to gain new expertise and knowledge or an entire degree to begin a career in booming and lucrative fields.

*Degrees and courses available 100% online with the exception of lab-intensive network engineering courses that require in-person instruction and resources.
