Cybersecurity Boot Camp to Start at University of Pennsylvania

Colin Wood reports for EdScoop that the engineering and professional studies schools at the University of Pennsylvania are joining forces to host a cybersecurity boot camp, with courses beginning on Nov. 12, 2019: “Announced earlier this month by the university’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and College of Liberal and Professional Studies, the 24-week program is designed to give the region’s cybersecurity workforce an injection of technical talent. According to the university, there are more than 10,000 open positions in the Philadelphia area that require cybersecurity skills.”

The university’s course description notes that “the boot camp’s courses aim to give its students proficiency in networking and modern information security practices and train[ing] in how to use tools such as Wireshark, a network-packet analyzer, and Kali Linux, a version of the popular operating system designed for digital forensics and penetration testing, among other tools. … Also included are career-planning advice, portfolio reviews and other support from the staff designed to help students get jobs after they complete the course.”
