 Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies

CYBR 5300 Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies

  • Introduces core concepts in cybersecurity including confidentiality, integrity, authentication, risk management, access control, identity and much more. The concepts will be applied to both traditional information technology (IT) systems and cyber physical systems (CPS). The course provides a cybersecurity foundation that will allow practitioners in other fields apply to understand cybersecurity trade-offs and will also provide interested students with a basis to further study in cybersecurity. At the conclusion of the course, students should have a solid foundation in cybersecurity with some initial hands-on experience. We recommend this course to be taken in the student's first semester.

 Technology, Thought Leadership and Policy

CYBR 5530 Technology, Thought Leadership and Policy

  • Introduces students to the key concepts in technology strategy and management and technology policy as well as its use in both industry and government.

 Networking and Secure Communications

CYBR 5010 Networking and Secure Communications

  • Combining conceptual knowledge about data communications and core computing technologies with hands-on labs, this course provides students with the ability to create innovative technology solutions in their discipline. Learning how the Internet works and being able to evaluate and operate an Internet network is a valuable skill; students in this course will have a competitive advantage in this foundational field, as well as learn the basics of coding and programming.

Students may petition to substitute courses from other departments for TCP requirements. Courses from Law, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Leeds School of Business, Political Science, Sociology, Applied Mathematics, Engineering Management, and more may be petitioned to substitute for Core and Advanced Elective courses. While not all petitions are guaranteed to be accepted, TCP is eager to allow students to craft their own education. Petitions must be approved prior to the semester start date.

Course numbers and titles are subject to change. Most TCP courses are offered online to current CU students via main-campus sections and to nondegree students via Continuing Education's Extraordinary program.
