The Information Assurance program offers students many different opportunities throughout their time spent in the program. During their time in the program, they are required to participate in government-contracted internships, in order to help further their search for a job. While during the school year they are sent to Washington DC for an annual job fair and to represent the Idaho State University National Information Assurance Training and Education Center (NIATEC) program. Students also receive hands-on experience with everyday tasks that they will experience before heading to the workforce as well as having the opportunity to earn certificates that can help better their career. Before leaving the program and graduating from Idaho State University students will have secured a job.
