Please pardon our classic look. We look forward to revealing this section's new look in July.


"I highly recommend this course to the dedicated individual seeking a deeper level of understanding for what they don't know (yet) in a short frame of time."

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. If you complete this intensive bridge course with a grade of B+ or better,  you are eligible to be admitted to the Cybersecurity master's program without any course deficiencies, if you meet all other School of Engineering admission requirements. Please review the Cybersecurity, MS program requirements.
