The Center for Innovation Education at Rutgers University has partnered with Socratic Arts Inc. to announce it has launched a Cyber Security Certification Program, beginning Nov. 27.
Development of the 24-week online program was funded by the Department of Defense, and the curriculum was developed in partnership with government-selected information security experts.
Students in the program will gain knowledge in defensive and offensive cyber operations skills.
"In keeping with Rutgers' Center for Innovation Education mission of providing cutting edge, high demand employment curriculum, we are pleased to offer this challenging and stimulating cyber security course that will prepare graduates to tackle the complex challenge of protecting and securing computer networks," said Stephen Carter, director of RIE.
The program, which is a non-credit certificate, is limited to the first 75 accepted candidates.
"Having developed this curriculum in conjunction with the Department of Defense, we looked for the right partner to offer this program, and the Rutgers Center for Innovation Education is the perfect university partner. The demand for information security professionals is exploding, and this program provides the skills and acumen required to succeed in this dynamic field,” Ray Bareiss, senior vice president of Socratic Arts, said.
