Pumphrey’s personal journey took him from a four-year break from college, where he instead worked in finance, to Purdue.

“Cybersecurity at Purdue… is the best in the country,” Pumphrey said. “I look at my experience and see that they prepare us so well here. You learn basic skills that you can actually apply.”

The Indianapolis cybersecurity program will be housed in the School of Engineering and Technology. Both subject areas (engineering and technology) are combined into one academic department in a way unique to Purdue Indy.

According to The Persistent Pursuit: Close relationships with professors have also led to incredible opportunities for Pumphrey outside of school, including the National Science Foundation CyberCorps Scholarship for Service (SFS).

“It’s a 24-hour scholarship for people interested in cybersecurity for the federal government after graduation,” explains Pumphrey. “And that’s what I want to do.”

In addition to his prestigious scholarships, Noah is actively involved on campus; read more at The Persistent Pursuit to learn about the close faculty mentorship, research, student club experiences, and much more he became involved in during his time in Indianapolis.
