UNCW To Offer Cybersecurity, Intelligent Systems Engineering Undergraduate Degrees

Sponsored Content provided by Robert Burrus - Dean , Cameron School of Business - UNC-Wilmington

UNCW announced on Thursday that it will begin offering two new bachelor of science programs: cybersecurity and intelligent systems engineering.

UNCW will be the first institution in the UNC system to offer undergraduate degrees in those disciplines after recently receiving approval from the UNC Board of Governors to begin the programs.

The programs are expected to start in fall 2022.

The addition of the cybersecurity program will help fill a significant gap in the workforce as tens of thousands of cybersecurity positions go unfilled in North Carolina and across the country, UNCW said, citing data from cyberseek.org.
