This degree builds upon three areas of expertise that AU already offers at the undergraduate and graduate levels: 1) Coding and programming, 2) Data and Cybersecurity, and 3) Business management and analytics. We believe that exposure to both the theoretical and practical applications of technology will help students acquire the skills needed to discern the most direct path in the journey from idea to application. With this graduate program, students will gain a well-rounded skillset in both abstract and practical thinking from a core of computer science and coding courses. They will extend and diversify this knowledge base with cybersecurity and business courses that will enhance career outcomes and prepare graduates for roles in software development, network and systems engineering, network analyst, and more.

In-person attendance is required in all weekend intensive meetings.  Zoom attendance is required in all scheduled online meetings, as described in each course syllabus.

International students are required to be enrolled full-time and register for the appropriate course when applying for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization.
