Developers know that systems have to be built with security and survivability in mind; a more comprehensive approach than relying on post-launch add-ons and patches. This curriculum of our Computing Security graduate program includes a core foundation of seven core courses that ensure students gain a strong understanding of a range of technological and ethical issues in computer security and information assurance. Under the guidance of a faculty adviser, students specialize their course by selecting four related elective courses, and later finish their program with a thesis. Faculty members at Golisano College are professionally engaged in the information assurance industry, and teach classes informed by their first-hand experience in cryptography, networking, databases, and software engineering.
