This course systematically covers the skills in penetration testing: the act of attempting to penetrate a computer system on behalf of the owners of the system for the purpose of discovering security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by a hacker.
This course introduces students to the field of artificial intelligence (AI). Students will learn how big data and data mining techniques are utilized by machines to create the AI models used by autonomous aircraft and automobiles, personal assistants, IT security software, fraud investigations and credit bureaus. The course will review the history, present day use, and future of artificial intelligence. Through case studies and current events, students will examine the benefits and risks associated with AI. The course will cover issues related to AI and privacy, ethics, and machine bias. Neuromorphic computing, the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX), and data analytics will also be discussed.
Our alumni are working as System Engineers, Infrastructure Software Specialists, IT Support Specialists, Cloud Architects, Data Scientists, IT System Analysts, Cybersecurity Analysts, Data Analysts, and Database Administrators.
Employers of our graduates include Vanguard, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Deloitte, Bank of America, T. Rowe Price, and Capital One.
