Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Nearly every day, new online breaches threaten our national security. Whether it’s credit card numbers being stolen, hospital records held hostage or a power plant taken offline, every attack opens our doors wider to hostile forces.

Our nation is vulnerable, and America needs reinforcements. We have a severe shortage of talent in the cybersecurity field, across military, government and private enterprise.

Norwich University has been a leader in the cyber field for 25 years. Today, military and industry are looking to us to develop the next generation of cyber warriors. And we are looking for you. (Along with the nation’s top professional recruiters.)

If you’re looking to answer the call to serve – in a job where you will always be of service – the cybersecurity field is a great choice. Better still is the choice to prepare for that career at Norwich, where cyber is in our code.

Launch Your Career

Our cyber program emphasizes experiential learning that prepares students to enter the workforce at a higher level. Many top employers offer internships exclusively to Norwich cyber students.

Make Connections

You’ll solidify your interests, your confidence and your network through conferences, events and clubs. Those experiences will introduce you to natural mentors – from fellow students to industry leaders – who can help you get ahead.

Build Your Cred

Our program offers many ways for you to build your “cyber cred,” and then use those proof points to build an impressive resume. You’ll have opportunities to present original research to industry leaders, earn key certifications, and participate in competitions.

  • Phil Susmann (NU’81), Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Norwich University

    “During your career at Norwich, you’ll gain the skills to work in the cyber environment, and we’re going to put you on the front lines. We teach you how to react to what’s today, not what I could put into a simulation from a year ago. You’ll have the opportunity to explore, hands-on, all the different ways you can go forward in the field of cybersecurity. If you go someplace else, you won’t get those experiences.”
  • Mike Battig

    “All students have tremendous opportunities in this field. In our program, they’re all built in. You don't have to leave our campus. We have cornered a market with major cyber firms and with NSA, DOD, DHS – a lot of the three-letter agencies – so the opportunities are all right here.”
  • Tyler Hayes

    “My internships allowed me to see the real-world applicability of the classes I’m taking. I’m actually doing real network monitoring and security. I look forward to the classes I’ll be taking junior and senior year because I understand how they can actually be used in real life.”
  • Maj. Gen. George Franz

    “Over the course of a 4-year education, we build practical, hands-on experience through internships, exercises and training opportunities through a research center, and really build up to a capstone from year 1 to year 4. That combination is really appealing to employers because it produces a graduate who can do more on day one.”
