TROY, Mich., Oct. 22, 2020 - Walsh will host virtual information sessions about bachelor's and master's information technology programs and the new master of science in data analytics on Nov. 5 at 6 p.m., Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. and Dec.1 at 6 p.m. All sessions will include live Q&A with staff and faculty.
Walsh's IT programs include concentrations in automotive cybersecurity (the first of its kind in the nation), cybersecurity, data science, programming, project management and more. Walsh was one of the first schools in Michigan to be recognized as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE/CD) and its IT degrees align with Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security NICE Framework Standards.
Earlier this year, Walsh transitioned all exams, courses and student services to 100% remote delivery in less than a week in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing students to continue their education without interruption to class or exam schedules. Remote delivery will continue through the winter 2021 semester, which ends Mar. 22, 2021.
'The technology we use allows us to modify our hands-on learning exercises for a remote format,' said Dave Schippers, D.Sc., Assistant Professor and Chair, IT/Decision Sciences. 'Students collaborate via voice and screen shares to practice skills they will use in the workplace, and our faculty logs in to interact and offer guidance, just as we would in our on ground Cyber Lab.'
