penetration testing, network security, digital forensics, and cybersecurity operations and management careers.
The Computer Science Department of Dallas Baptist University is committed to providing a high-quality education that stresses
excellence in work performance, scholarship, ethical application of knowledge, and logical and practical skills for dealing with a
society that is dependent upon constantly changing computer-related technology. This will be accomplished within a Christian
