With high-profile information breaches and identity thefts in the news regularly, the need to secure data and the systems that store it has never been more important. Play your part in keeping important information safe with a certificate or degree from Collin College’s Information Systems Cybersecurity program.

Collin College’s cybersecurity program will prepare you for a career in cybersecurity management and support with an education in network management, system administration, technical support, hardware/software installation and equipment repair. Courses and hands-on labs will prepare you to take a variety of Cisco, Microsoft, and CompTIA certification examinations. As a graduate with an Associate of Applied Science, you will be able to design and install secure network systems based on customer requirements, monitor and maintain network traffic and security, and maintain network hardware and software.

If your program requires a criminal background check, your placement in a required clinical site, cooperative, practicum, internship, and/or licensure/certification opportunity may be impacted. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your program director and check with your licensing/certifying entity, if any, to determine your status.

Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with Collin College academic advisors. Also check the degree requirement of the intended transfer college prior to beginning this program to verify course degree applicability.
