No matter your major at Rose, a minor in cybersecurity provides a strong foundation to meet future high-tech challenges and join a growing number of professionals securing the world’s future.

Cybersecurity - A Program for all Rose-Hulman Majors

With computers integrated into most products and services that engineers design today, it is important that engineers from all fields of study are prepared to create systems that are secure from cyberattacks. A minor in cybersecurity at Rose-Hulman will provide students with the opportunity to develop that capability.

Rose-Hulman's cybersecurity minor curriculum exposes students to the fundamental of securing computer and information systems, risk, ethics, technical controls, and adversarial thinking.

Several Rose-Hulman alumni have put their cybersecurity knowledge to work at well-known companies such as Microsoft, Meta, Google, Airbnb, Groupon and Salesforce, for government contractors like Northrup Grumman, and government agencies that work directly with the defense industry and companies that provide contracted cybersecurity support.

Information about course requirements is available in our Course Catalog.

Associate Professor of Computer Science and Software Engineering

Chemical and mechanical engineers, along with other STEM majors, should know how their designs are impacted by the computers that help automate the machines and critical infrastructure they build. This cybersecurity minor is intended to enrich the existing degree program of students in these programs, so that they understand the safety implications of whatever they engineer or study. We want to prepare them to make the things they engineer, by default, secure from cyberattacks and safe for people to use.
