This paper will review the new proposed undergraduate degree in Cyber Security Engineering (BS/CYSE) from the Volgenau School of Engineering. This program is an interdisciplinary degree that will reside at the school level. The anticipated start date for this degree is Fall 2014. This undergraduate program prepares its graduates for a successful career in cyber security engineering. Cyber attacks can affect not only computer systems but the physical systems that they are often integrated with and embedded in, including power plants and power distribution systems, manufacturing operations, transportation and navigation systems, health care systems, and many others.
