Cyber Technology — NSC STEM Pathways – OLI

The National STEM Consortium’s (NSC) Cyber Technology Pathway is a one-year, 30-credit hybrid course (mixture of online and face-to-face) consisting of 12 mini-courses. The entire Pathway consists of a set of materials a school or institution can customize for their program’s or students’ needs.

Created through a collaboration with the OPEN Platform+ program, The National STEM Consortium academic certificate in Cyber Technology is built on a 30-semester-credit model with learning outcomes mapped to the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. Graduates are prepared for entry-level Cyber positions in across industry and in government, and have an opportunity to sit for nationally recognized certifications from Cisco and CompTIA.

The National STEM Consortium (NSC) is a collaborative of ten colleges in nine states, funded by a U.S. Department of Labor grant to develop one-year, 30-credit certificate programs in five Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields: Composites Technology, Cyber Technology, Electric Vehicle Technology, Environmental Technology, and Mechatronics Technology.

These materials are available as an OLI course.

  • Open Learning Initiative (OLI) courses are designed by learning scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. They use data and research insights to develop, test, and improve OER course materials that effectively support learning.

This course is available at no cost to SUNY students.
