Graduate Coordinator: David Eggert, Associate Professor of Computer Science, PhD, University of South Florida.
A nationally recognized leader in experiential education, the University of New Haven offers a 30-credit master's degree program in network systems, blending the presentation of theory with hands-on practice. This equips our students with a solid foundation of skills, and more importantly, the ability to adapt to the constantly evolving landscape of a cyber system’s infrastructure. As a result, our graduates are not only productive in their new jobs, but quickly rise to leadership positions.
Flexibility is the key aspect of our MS degree, as it can prepare you to enter the IT sector directly after graduation, or to continue your educational path to a Ph.D. You are encouraged to explore one of three focus areas currently in demand: recovering evidence to support a criminal investigation in the world of cyber forensics, investigating the properties of the next generation of wireless networking, or maintaining and protecting a computing infrastructure in the face of ever-present security threats.
An additional feature of the program caters to those wishing to switch fields into the cyber systems realm. We have prepared a set of four bridge courses to help you transition from your previous background to a level of readiness that enables you to successfully pursue the rest of the degree program. Some of our best students began their journey in this manner and we encourage you to join them.
