Future Anticipated Education goals:

2019 - 2021 (University of Tampa) Applied Nov. 16, 2017 Digital Forensics BAS

Computer Security is concerned with designing mechanisms for protecting computers and networks from attacks, keeping information confidential and safe from tampering, preventing unauthorized access to resources, and providing robust security to various applications including e-commerce transactions. Research areas investigated by our faculty include but are not limited to Intrusion Prevention and Detection, Malware Propagation Modeling and Analysis, Security of Wireless Networks, Sensor Networks and Vehicular Ad hoc Networks, Authentication Protocols, and Cloud Security.

Digital Forensics addresses the problem of recovering evidence (e.g., to be used in court) from computers, mobile devices, or any storage media that may hold data in binary form.

2021 - 2023 (University of Tampa) Applied Nov. 16, 2017 Masters Digital Forensics

The Digital Forensics master's degree is a collaborative effort between various UCF academic departments (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Forensic Science of Chemistry, Criminal Justice, and Legal Studies) and the National Center for Forensic Science (NCFS). NCFS is both a national center, as part of the National Institute of Justice Forensic Research Network of the Department of Justice, and a state Type II Center. NCFS is based in the UCF College of Sciences as a forensic science research center and is housed in Orlando's Research Park, adjacent to UCF.


The Digital Forensics MS degree is comprised of 30 hours of study beyond the bachelor's degree with required, intensive specialization in topics related to digital forensics. The degree program prepares students, including working professionals, who will pursue the degree on a part-time basis to gain the knowledge and skills required to work as an examiner in the field. The program may also be taken by those who have an interest in scientific applications and research in the field, and who would like to continue to a doctoral degree program or law school after completion.
