What You’ll Study

SUNY Poly’s Utica Campus

The Network and Computer Security program faculty include both cybersecurity researchers and IT professionals. The research faculty offer strong foundational knowledge, while the practitioners offer students a hands-on view to the real world of network/system administration and IT systems security. We believe both are essential to the full development of our graduates.

Calculus Statistics Finite/Discrete Math Liberal Arts Introduction to Cybersecurity Network Transmission Technology Computing Fundamentals Introduction to Linux Hardware and Network Infrastructure Networking and Information Systems Information Assurance Fundamentals Information Assurance Ethics, Policies and Disaster Recovery Wireless Systems and Security Data Network Design Network Firewalls Network Intrusion Detection Digital and Internet Telephony Internetworking Computer and Network Forensics Network Security Advanced Wireless Security Special Topics in Network and Computer Security

Located on hundreds of wooded and landscaped acres, SUNY Poly’s Utica campus is a beautiful living and learning environment. First-year students live in our modern, spacious residential complexes, including the new Hilltop Hall, SUNY’s first zero-net, carbon-certified residence hall, and enjoy an expanding array of student-focused facilities that include our state-of-the-art Center for Global Advanced Manufacturing, student center, and field house. Life on campus is enriched by a wide variety of events and activities, including the Wildcats’ championship-winning intercollegiate athletics program, our Wildcat Esports team, and a weekly agenda of intramurals, concerts, comedians, and more. Students can join one of the dozens of clubs and organizations or start one with a group of friends who share an interest.

Another program administered by the department is MS in Network and Computer Security.

Career Opportunities

Well-prepared cyber security professionals are of critical importance to the U.S. as we face increased threats from hackers worldwide. Thus Cyber Security professionals are in high demand throughout industry and government sectors. Diverse opportunities exist in companies of all sizes, in all geographic regions, and in all industries. Growth areas for employment include incident response, penetration testing, and cyber security research. Students are introduced to industry mentors as part of their senior capstone experience, and thus have the opportunity to engage in solving real-world cyber security problems. A recent search found 1 in 5 jobs listed on the technical job search dice.com matches the keyword “security.” The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports “Information security analysts plan and carry out security measures to protect an organization’s computer networks and systems. Their responsibilities are continually expanding as the number of cyberattacks increases.” The demand for these cybersecurity professionals with a Bachelor’s degree is projected to grow by 18% over the 2014-2024 period. The 2015 report states that the median pay for information security analysts was $90K.

Labs Students in the NCS program will work in the Newman Cyber Lab, equipped with Linux and Windows workstations and a variety of Cisco networking and telephony gear in individual stations that simulate a branch office. The handson approach to intermediate and advanced coursework helps prepare students for industry certification exams in computing, security, and networking.
