At the Professional Science Master’s program, we are always on the lookout for exciting events to keep our students engaged. And this time, we closed out February with a thrilling movie night featuring a cyberattack story. 

Assistant Teaching Professor Lars Sorenson, the popular instructor of our Python Methodologies course, handpicked the documentary thriller, Zero Days. From the award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, the movie is about Stuxnet, a self-replicating computer malware that is also known as the world’s first cyberweapon. 

As Sorenson described it, “[It’s] a really cool story. If you didn’t see the movie, you wouldn’t believe it.” 

As the lights dimmed, Sorenson kicked off the evening with a brief introduction to the film and provided a fascinating glimpse into the history of cyber. Over 30 students joined and snacked on pizza, popcorn, and refreshments.

It was a fantastic night for students to relax and learn more about the exciting world of cyber warfare—which is particularly relevant to students in our cybersecurity concentration. But the fun is not over yet, we plan to host a karaoke night soon. Stay tuned for more details!
