The Tickle College of Engineering offers a minor in datacenter technology and management to establish broad awareness of datacenter requirements, design and management technologies and methodologies, including reliability, security, network systems, storage systems, industrial design, systems management, application environments/management, operations, logistics and energy efficiencies. The program is not expected to deliver deep knowledge in a specific area, but to give a student sufficient basic insight on datacenter operational characteristics and requirements.
Disciplines appropriate for entry into this program include Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
The NSA will process clearances for anyone in the program who applies for the NSA's internship program. There will also be opportunities for students to complete the program and intern at commercial companies interested in this skill set.
