  Good day to everyone,
        I am Isaac Gibbons.  I am a fellow student pursuing my MS in Cybersecurity Engineering.  I am currently the representative for MS Cybersecurity Engineering in George Mason University's Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA).  GAPSA is essentially a representative student body that provides a vector for interaction between students in a particular discipline and the executive/administrative staff of George Mason University.  I personally want to ensure that all MS Cybersecurity Engineering students receive the necessary support and resources to succeed!  As part of that commitment, I have some information to relay that you will find of particular interest.

      - Career Services
       GMU maintains a Career Services is a highly recommended avenue for all MS Cybersecurity Engineering students, as they can assist in defining your next steps from a career perspective.
