Experience Learning in Internships and Technical Projects

Built-In Internship

Test your skills in the real world with a senior-year internship, a required part of our curriculum in Cybersecurity. Build your resume, connect with potential employers, and assess your strengths in real-time.

Communicate Like a Pro

We talked with our industry partners. What we heard was simple: your ability to write and present wins the day.

They count on you to: write clear instructions for general users, present technical findings to a non-technical executive and translate technical discovery into team tasks.

So, that’s what you learn.

Our small classes set up a good environment to learn to give and take feedback. We’ve built in a dedicated course on research and writing for cyber professionals. At every turn, we ask you to both learn more and share your learning in writing and presentations.

Industry-Ready Preparation

Pick at least 1 of 5 Industry-recognized certifications to earn as part of your degree: A+, Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+), Network+, Security+

Prepare to sit for 2 industry exams: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Project Management Professional (PMP)

NSA-Aligned curriculum: The National Security Agency (NSA) Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense publishes the national gold standard for cybersecurity education. Your curriculum in NGU’s cybersecurity program aligns with these standards to prepare you for the field.
