This foundational course serves as an introduction to many of the subsequent topics discussed in depth in later security courses. 注意:本课程有监考考试。. This exam requires additional technology, if student uses online proctoring.
ISEC 620 -软件及应用程序保安(4)
今天，从金融到制造业，软件几乎是所有企业的核心. Software pervades everyday life in expected places like phones and computers but also in places that you may not consider such as toasters, 恒温器, 汽车, and even light bulbs. 安全 flaws in software can have impacts ranging from inconvenient to damaging and even catastrophic when it involves life-critical systems. 如何设计和构建软件以最小化缺陷的存在或减轻它们的影响? 这门课 focuses on software development processes that identify, 模型, 并减轻对各种软件的威胁. 主题包括威胁建模框架, 攻击树, 攻击库, 防守战术, 安全软件开发生命周期, 网络, 云, 还有人为因素.
ISEC 640 -密码学(4)
The cryptographic primitives of enciphering/deciphering and hashing are the two main 方法 of preserving confidentiality and integrity of data at rest and in transit. 因此，加密技术的研究是安全从业人员的主要兴趣. 这门课 will cover the important principles in historical and modern 密码学 including the underlying information theory, 数学, 和随机性. Important technologies such as stream and block ciphers, 对称和非对称密码学, public key infrastructure, 并将探索密钥交换. 最后, 哈希和消息身份验证码将作为保持数据完整性的一种方式进行检查.
645年薪酬 - Object-Oriented Design & 练习(4)
本课程概述了当前软件开发和软件设计的实践, especially in the area of object-oriented design. 本课程将考察和对比当前和领先的方法和实践, 包括敏捷, 极限编程, 测试驱动设计, 模式, aspect-oriented programming, 模型-driven architecture, Unified Modeling Language, 集成开发环境.
650年薪酬 - System Architecture & 工程(4)
这门课 covers topics in software systems engineering. Its scope is the design of the overall architecture for software systems with emphasis on distributed architectures. The issues in an architecture centered software development cycle and project management are addressed.
本课程从应用的角度介绍人工智能(AI). After an introduction of some basic concepts and techniques (such as searching and knowledge representation), the course illustrates both the theoretical foundation and application of these techniques with examples from a variety of problems.
The course surveys a wide range of active areas in AI such as machine learning, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, 机器人, intelligent agents and bio-inspired AI approaches. It strikes a balance between engineering approaches and theory.
Exercises include hands-on application of basic AI techniques as well as selection of appropriate technologies for a given problem. The principal topics in the selected areas are also coupled with projects where groups of students will participate in the creation of AI-based applications.
这门课 provides MSCS students the opportunity to further their education with relevant work experience in the field of 计算机科学. 这个实习是学生、教师和就业主管之间的一个持续的研讨会. It involves a Learning Contract (Curricular Practical Training [CPT] Information, 或其他), periodic meetings with the faculty representative, 和专业经验的水平相当于MSCS计划的其他选修课程. 学习合同中规定了需要提交的材料. Participation cannot be guaranteed for all applicants.
699年薪酬 - Independent Studies in Graduate 计算机科学 (1-4)
Independent studies courses allow students in good academic standing to pursue learning in areas not covered by the regular curriculum or to extend study in areas presently taught. Study is under faculty supervision and graded on Pass/No Credit basis. For international students, 经课程主席批准，课程实践训练可作为独立学习. (See the "Independent Studies" section of the Academic Bulletin for more details.)
