The Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering moves beyond the disciplinary boundaries approach of computer engineering, computer science, information technology, information systems, and software engineering.

Augusta University’s program will train professional engineers who are capable of applying mathematics, science, and engineering knowledge to analyze and design complex systems that address:

  1. The application of security principles and practices to the design, implementation, and operations of the physical, software, and human components of the system under analysis.
  2. The application of protective technologies and forensic techniques
  3. The analysis and evaluation of components and systems with respect to security and to maintaining operations in the presence of risks and threats, and the consideration of legal, regulatory, privacy, ethics, and human behavior topics as they relate to cybersecurity.

 

Academic Plan


Our program aligns with the proposed 2018-2019 ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission Program criteria for cybersecurity engineering and the Joint Task Force on Cybersecurity Education curriculum guidelines. With the development of this degree program, Augusta University will be eligible to earn designation as a National Security Agency (NSA) Centers of Excellence in Cyber Operations (CAE-Cyber Operations).
