Vincennes University and Purdue University have forged a partnership to help fill the growing demand for cybersecurity experts.
Through Purdue’s Cyber Apprenticeship Program, students will have access to two online associate degree programs and an online cybersecurity certificate.
Students in the Vincennes programs will have the opportunity to transfer credits to Purdue, including the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs offered within the P-CAP.
“Cybersecurity is not just an IT initiative, and the apprenticeship program will bring awareness to the hundreds of cyber-related competencies needed across the organization to secure digital assets,” said Jaci Lederman, chair of the information technology department at Vincennes University.
Apprentices pursuing an online IT Support and Cybersecurity associate degree from Vincennes University study the forensic investigative side of cybersecurity along with the information and network security side.
Students learn how to protect information systems from threats as well as how to administer servers and build, repair, and troubleshoot computers and servers.
