The Sage Colleges Expands Cybersecurity Program Offerings



The Sage Colleges now offers an Information Technology-Cybersecurity Bachelor of Science degree program on the Sage College of Albany campus as well as online. Both programs offer students a foundation in data communications and networking, programming, operating systems, system administration, database design, systems integration and project management in addition to specialized courses that prepare students to protect network infrastructures, secure electronic assets, prevent attacks, investigate cybercrimes, perform incident analysis and build secure infrastructures.

“Thanks to student interest and employer demand, Sage has been able to grow its cybsersecurity programs to better meet students’ personal, professional and educational goals,” said Dawit H. Demissie, Ph.D., assistant professor of computer science and cybsersecurity program director. “All classes, whether traditional or online, are taught by highly-credentialed experts in the field, and all students have the same access to personal attention from instructors.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for information technology professionals, particularly cybersecurity professionals, is projected to grow 28 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations: “Demand for information security analysts is expected to be very high, as these analysts will be needed to create innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or causing problems for computer networks.
