Looking for an industry with 0% unemployment? CyberSecurity! Learn a bit about Stuxnet to see why this is an industry that is growing so rapidly. If nuclear facilities can be targeted, imagine the potential security threat when everything goes online with the Internet of Things. This Internet thing doesn't seem to be going away.
So, what do you need to get started in an industry like this? An expert knowledge of Networking, hardware and electronics.
Throughout the engineeringCentral program, you get exposure to all these topics. So now we look at networking. We need to know how to set them up, connect to them, and secure them. That will give us the expertise to configure reliable networks at home. But in order to become a pro, you need to get deep into networking. For those of you who are interested, you can go deeper into the Cisco Networking Academy than we have time to get in class. This will give you a solid foundation for industries like Network Administrators, Network Analysts, Cyber Security professionals, Pen-Testers (White-hat Hackers), and other high-demand occupations.
