Cyber Security Training for Veterans
CCI's Bachelor of Science in Computing and Security Technology (BSCST) utilizes practical computer application that pairs well with the expertise and experience possessed by active duty military personnel and veterans. Our undergraduate cyber security and information technology program focuses on problem solving, data analysis, defensive and offensive operations, and teamwork -- skills that are already instilled in members of the military. Students in our program have the opportunity to hone their technical skills by researching new cyber security threats, and gaining practice using various IT and cyber security technologies.
Flexible Cyber Security Training for Veterans
Our cyber security program can be completed both on campus and online, which allows our veterans and active-duty military students to work full-time and manage responsibilities outside of the classroom while gaining valuable, hands-on skills training in cyber security. Our online classes allow active-duty service members and veterans employed full-time at large tech companies and government agencies to stay on top of their class work from around the country and across the globe.
Cyber Security Jobs for Veterans
A Bachelor’s degree in computing and security technology opens the door to a wide range of opportunities for military members and veterans. Whether they intend to continue working in roles that align with the military mission or seek to enter the private sector, they'll be prepared with the training in cyber security and IT gained from the degree program.
For example, Navy veterans who complete our cyber security and IT degree program can find government or contractor roles with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to protect Navy ship systems from cyber attacks. With a cyber security degree from Drexel, Army veterans can find roles that allow them to protect Army networks, and Air Force veterans can protect airplane systems from attackers. Military veterans with training in cyber security are also sought after by agencies such as the FBI and the NSA. Working as a government contractor or federal government employee can help veterans make a transition from the military to the civilian sector.
In the private sector, professionals with training in cyber security are in great demand across all industries. Financial firms, energy and utility companies, manufacturing companies, and health companies all require data security and protection against ransomware and other cyber security threats.
RESOURCES FOR ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY & VETERANS IN OUR CYBER SECURITY & IT PROGRAM
Drexel University's Office of Veteran Student Services coordinates a campus-wide effort to ensure that student-veterans are able to access high-quality campus services with ease. Our goal is to create a truly military-friendly campus community through our welcoming and informative approach.
"I knew Drexel was the right fit because they were welcoming from the very first phone call, before I even stepped foot on campus. Their Veterans Services office hosts regular events where you can meet other veterans, including their career fairs that are designed just for military members."
