Cybersecurity with Texas Tech Coding Academy
This course aims to make participants proficient in the basics of cybersecurity. Participants will learn cybersecurity basics and leave prepared for the CompTIA Security+ certification test. The purpose of this track is to provide a flexible education for students of computer science or not technical professionals to begin at the ground floor of cybersecurity. The courses should build upon one another, yet allow advanced students to start in a more advanced course. The objective of this is to provide effective performance-based education to our students aspiring to learn cybersecurity.
Classes will be a mix of presentations to convey concepts, working through examples, and individual exercises for the participants. In addition to in-class exercises, participants are expected to complete all due homework. All instruction and materials will be in English. The teacher of this course is Mr. John Woo.
Attendance is mandatory and any student who does not attend at least 90% of the meetings will fail the course automatically. Participants will be assessed based on the participant’s in-class work (30%) and projects (70%).
