Northrop Grumman Corporation has announced a partnership with the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science to offer a master’s degree in computer science with a focus on cyber informatics. The course will begin in the fall of 2010.
“This new partnership between Northrop Grumman and the University of Cincinnati will bring core knowledge and expertise to the region within the cyber community,” said Martin Simoni, site director for Northrop Grumman’s Xetron business unit. “Educating and developing home-grown talent is critical in today’s highly competitive job market. Our cyber master’s program will allow our technical experts to groom students on the job and in the classroom.”
The course is predominately targeted towards NGC employees at the Xetron facility in Cincinnati. It will allow for flexible class schedules and locations, with classes being held on campus and at the NGC facility. The classes will be taught by instructors from the university as well as Northrop Grumman.
“The University of Cincinnati is excited about this opportunity to collaborate with industry to develop a program that provides innovative approaches for our 21st century engineers as they prepare to face real-world challenges,” said Carlo Montemagno, dean of engineering and applied science at the University of Cincinnati.
