We have a cybersecurity lab with tools you'd usually pay thousands of dollars to access. We're taught by industry people as well as academics – one of my professors is currently at Microsoft – and you hear about opportunities you wouldn't otherwise. There are lots of opportunities because there's a huge demand for people with these kinds of skills.
