With the rapidly changing technological landscape in engineering industries, an advanced degree or continuing education is becoming increasingly necessary. The Master of Engineering in Information Assurance degree is offered to off-campus students. This program is designed to assist individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree in computing or related areas to pursue an in-depth study in information assurance that stretches across several departments.
The Master of Engineering program is based on coursework credits only. There is no thesis or creative component is required, and no visit to campus is required. Courses are offered via our Engineering-LAS Online Learning streaming media online education program (see www.eol.iastate.edu).
Students admitted into the Master of Engineering program are required to create a program of study. The student and major professor, in consultation, determine the elective courses to be taken and the acceptance of transfer credits. The Program of Study must be submitted to the Graduate College by its deadline and approved in the term before the Final Oral Examination. Additional information, deadlines and the application are located on the Graduate College website.
The Master of Engineering in Information Assurance degree is housed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Please contact Stacey Ross () with details of your work history and background information to find your best fit.
