ISU collaborates with INL to offer two new cybersecurity certificates

March 29, 2021

Idaho State University, in collaboration with the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), is offering two new cybersecurity certificates as part of a state-wide cybersecurity education initiative between Idaho universities and the INL.

 With more than 1,500 open cybersecurity jobs in the regional government and commercial entities, these certificates were developed to provide students with the cybersecurity skills to obtain these jobs.

The undergraduate Computer Science Cybersecurity Certificate requires 27 credits and can be completed in four semesters. All required courses can be used toward the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.

The graduate Secure Cyber Operations Certificate was developed to provide students who have completed a bachelor’s degree with sufficient skills to obtain an Idaho cyber operations job. The certificate requires 12 credit hours and can be completed in one year.
