NBCC creates New Brunswick’s first Cybersecurity Post-Grad Program

Tags:

To be offered in September 2018, the New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) is going to launch a new one-year post-graduate cybersecurity diploma program at its Saint John campus.

This one-year program was developed together with CyberNB and industry to address the anticipated growing demand for cybersecurity expertise in New Brunswick. The admission requirement for this program is a diploma or degree in network administration, computer science or equivalent experience in network administration. While the curriculum is still in development, NBCC says that the program will equip graduated with “the skills and knowledge that industry is seeking, and help expand the cybersecurity infrastructure in New Brunswick.”

According to a recent report from Cisco, in 2016, there are about one million jobs available worldwide in cybersecurity and many of them were not filled. By 2019, that’s expected to grow to six million.
