Using the Cohort Typical Example Program Course Sequence table above, all fall semester courses and courses the first summer term are delivered completely online (i.e. no residential requirement). Spring semester courses each year (TEC 5353, MIS 4850, TEC 5413, and MIS 4860) have hands-on laboratory expectations, so students will have a four day residential requirement during finals week of those semesters to complete necessary labs. The second summer of the program will consist of an additional residential requirement approximately 10 days in length to complete the two credit hour capstone experience after finishing laboratories for TEC 5413 and MIS 4860. CYB 5900 Cybersecurity Capstone will begin after semester five laboratories are completed. In summary, four days in residence are required to end the first spring semester, and approximately ten days in residence are necessary the second year to complete the M.S. in Cybersecurity.
