The cybersecurity curriculum offers hands-on training in networking, systems, web technologies, databases and defensive and offensive cybersecurity.
Applicants do not need programming experience to enroll, but once admitted, all students will complete a pre-course tutorial. As the program is part-time, Washington University Boot Camps are designed for working professionals and students who are actively pursuing a career change, advancement or looking to gain a new skill set.
Throughout the 24-week programs, students have access to career-planning services including resume and portfolio reviews, technical interview training, virtual tech panels, 1:1 coaching and more. Those who complete the program will receive a non-credit Certificate of Completion from the Technology & Leadership Center at Washington University McKelvey School of Engineering. Students in the cybersecurity program will learn skills applicable to industry certifications.
Washington University Boot Camps are offered in collaboration with edX.
