University earns designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD)

The College of Engineering Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering with a Minor in Cybersecurity degree program earns prestigious CAE-CD designation from the NSA and the DHS.

“The designation is a recognition of the program that we have put in place over the years,” Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Cybersecurity Center Nancy LaTourrette said. “It has been a department-wide effort, but it is more than that. It required the support of faculty in eight disciplines across campus, as well as strong support from University administration.”

Our mission

Our mission is to master the challenge of cybersecurity by bringing together cross-disciplinary teams to work in synchrony, examining each problem through disciplinary lenses and seeking solutions that incorporate societal, technical, ethical, political and economic considerations. The Cybersecurity Center will provide educational and research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students that will prepare them to pursue careers in cybersecurity and related fields.
