Since many of the best positions in growing fields like cyber security, data science, and artificial intelligence require an advanced degree, we designed this online program to prepare you for entrance into the Cybersecurity Master's Degree program at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Students with a humanities, arts or social science undergraduate degree will find this program particularly beneficial as you may have little to no computer science training.

Program Qualification

Students must have a Bachelor's degree in any discipline. To successfully complete this bridge course with a good grade, proficiency in college algebra, and some exposure to programming is desirable but not required. Please note that admission to different MS programs in Tandon have their own requirements which a successful bridge student needs to meet for being considered for admission. Please review these requirements.
