Cybersecurity Study Tour

The Cybersecurity Study Tour will not take place in 2021. We expect to offer it again in May 2022.

Meet with cybersecurity and intelligence analysts and recruiters to learn about job opportunities, career paths, skills and experience needed to work in this exciting field!

Planned stops include the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), Department of Homeland Security, Northrup Grumman's Innovation Center and Booz Allen Hamilton.

The study tour typically takes place for one week in early May and is led by Samantha Groh and Kenneth Pope, both assistant professors and co-op advisors in computer science and information technology.

The course is recommended for students who are interested in cybersecurity and majoring in Information Technology, Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Cyber Studies (Political Science). The three-credit-hour course is an advisor-approved elective for IT majors and fulfills the BoK SCE requirement for other majors.

A program fee of approximately $800 includes flight, hotel and transportation.
