Cybersecurity Minor

MSIT's three-unit minor in cybersecurity is open to all students enrolled in Northwestern Engineering's professional Master's programs. TGS students are not eligible to enroll at this time.

Interested students can apply for the minor here. All students submit a brief application signed by their advisor. Students outside MSIT submit the application as well as a current CV, a statement of interest in the minor, and qualifying TOEFL/IELTS scores (if applicable). Students outside MSIT should consult with their associate director or academic advisor to determine how cybersecurity minor coursework will apply toward completion of their primary degree program.
