Accelerated Cybersecurity Engineering Option

Accelerated Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering

Exceptional students enrolled in a Bachelor of Science degree program at DB College of Engineering have the opportunity to pursue the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering (MSCybE) in an accelerated degree program format. In this option, up to nine hours of graduate coursework may be taken to fulfill undergraduate technical elective requirements and specified courses. These hours will count toward both the BS and MS degree requirements provided that the student is enrolled in the accelerated MSCybE option and receives a "B" or better in the course. Students must complete a minimum of 120 undergraduate course credits for their Bachelor of Science degree.

Undergraduate students may apply to the accelerated MS option by submitting an application to the MSCybE Program Coordinator. Students must have completed 88 credit hours toward the BS degree and must have a 3.2 minimum GPA to be admitted to the program. Students will be dropped from the program if their GPA falls below 3.0. The Bachelor of Science degree will be conferred upon completion of all bachelor’s degree requirements; the Master of Science degree will be conferred upon completion of all master’s degree requirements.
