It is helpful for students to start researching career fields of interest as early as possible. Visit O*Net OnLine for occupation information including summary of technology skills, abilities, work activities, level of required education, wages, employment trends, and more. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is also a great resource for checking local and national employment trends, expected job growth, salary information, and entry-level education needed.


Although the Cybersecurity program does not place students into internships, students can learn more about internship opportunities through the Academic Internship Program and Career Center. Additionally, once students are admitted into the bachelor’s program they will receive an invitation to join the BAS Cybersecurity Microsoft Teams group where the program manager will communicate out relevant job/internship opportunities.

All bachelor’s students will have the option of completing a Capstone project at the end of their studies or an internship in their area of study that meets the qualifications for EXPRL 490/491. The internship must be approved by the program chair prior to starting. For more information on capstone vs. internship options please email the program manager.
