Dustin Fraser

Instructor, Retraining Program for Immigrant Engineers

My name is Dustin Fraser. I am a Ph.D. student at Capitol Technology University. My intended degree in Business Analytics and Data Science. In 2018, I graduated from the same institution with a Master’s degree in Cyber and Information Security. In 2017, I completed several courses at the Cooper Union Retraining Program for Immigrant Engineers. This influenced my interest in such a way that I considered research on how cybersecurity can be a driver for economic growth. I believe it is important that we develop requisite skills to strengthen our capacity to cope with new technologies and technological advancement.

Apart from education and school, there are several interesting things about me. I am very fluent in Spanish. I enjoy traveling and try to visit new places. I am grateful to be in a position where I can make contributions towards developing new careers. The totality of my education, experiences, and interests help me to advance our community to a better place.
