Bachelor of Science Degree
The goal of this program is to provide a positive learning and teaching environment in applied science and technology. The program treats the technical aspects of the discipline in order to educate a new breed security director who integrates crime prevention theory with the design philosophy and hardware and software components of security systems. Criminal justice and security are by their nature information gathering and processing activities and students need to be prepared for a changing work environment where computers will be used extensively. The computer as an integrating technology is emphasized in the program to achieve remarkable effectiveness as well as exceptional efficiency of crime control performance. The Access Control, Computer Forensics, Computer Security, Intrusion Detection, and Security-Imaging Sensor laboratories which house state-of-the-art equipment serve as technical resources for the program. The courseware teaches students how to: manage the movement of people in organizations; detect intrusions on the corporate network; deter acts of corporate espionage and sabotage; and prevent theft of company assets. What is different about this program is that it has been shaped as a digital age curriculum. Students do not simply learn about hardware and software but also are taught how to use it to solve protection problems.
Our program offers students a choice of one of two concentrations, 1) a networking concentration; or 2) a transportation security – aviation concentration. These concentrations are supported by courses from Farmingdale’s Aviation and Computer Systems Departments.
