The Bachelor of Science in Computing and Security Technology, offered online and on-site through Goodwin College’s Saturday Scholars® program, focuses on educating technologists for industry. The CST program emphasizes practical, hands-on education and provides fundamental concepts that are supplemented by laboratory experience.

From webmasters, content-developers, and database specialists to network and system administrators and computer systems security managers, computing technologists serve as key agents in the societal revolution that is changing us from an industrial to a digital, knowledge-based society.

The Computing and Security Technology program is suitable for students who are:

  • Currently employed in the field of information technology and seek professional advancement with a focus on computing technology and/or security.
  • Interested in computing and security technology and seek a career change or personal enrichment.
  • Working adults who have already earned an associate's degree or completed approximately two years of college work.

Working students will appreciate the degree-completion format of this program which allows for greater flexibility of transfer credits in a convenient Saturday on-site or an online format.

Students who complete this program may, with additional study, also prepare for highly sought-after certification examinations from organizations including:

  • CompTIA
  • CIW
  • Microsoft
  • Oracle
  • Sun
  • Cisco
  • RedHat

Just as Drexel broke new technological ground when it became the first university in the nation to require every student to have access to a personal computer, Goodwin’s School of Technology and Professional Studies’ cutting-edge computer labs and use of wireless technology have also gained national attention. These labs provide the backdrop for the innovative and timely courses in CST.
