Women's Cybersecurity Immersion Camp

July 11-15, 2022

Program fee: $300

This week-long interactive virtual camp is designed for women who are interested in exploring the ever-expanding field of cybersecurity. Participants will work in teams to design their own projects while getting hands-on experience with popular cybersecurity tools and technology, including Wireshark, Nmap, Burp Suite, and more. This year's camp will include a focus on the Internet of Things (IoT). Students with little to no technical background are encouraged to apply.



"One of the most exciting parts of the program was when we visited Assembly Hall and got to see the technology that’s used to capture game-time footage that’s used to analyze the basketball program. It was fascinating to see behind-the-scenes virtual reality technology and computer labs in action. I also loved meeting new students from around the country, working with Luddy faculty and staff, and spending time with current students who were our counselors!”

Meredith Fain, current Luddy computer science B.S. major and former summer program participant
