Middlesex Community College is now offering two Cybersecurity certificate programs: the Entry-Level IT Cybersecurity Certificate, and the new Advanced IT Cybersecurity Certificate.

Classes are held in MCC’s new state-of-the-art Cybersecurity Lab on the Lowell campus, and financial aid is available for those who qualify.

MCC’s Entry-Level Cybersecurity Certificate program prepares students for employment in a variety of entry-level network administration positions, or to continue their education in this growing field.

New this fall, the Advanced Cybersecurity Certificate program is designed for students who have already worked a minimum of one year in the network-administration field. This program allows students to obtain the cybersecurity skills now required for a variety of positions in network-security administration.

Problem-solving and analytical thinking are emphasized throughout these certificate programs, with a hands-on approach to learning.

MCC’s Cybersecurity certificate programs conform to the National Initiative for Cyber Security Education (NICE) framework for academic programs, developed jointly by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
