Located just moments away from Broad Street and the Riverwalk in Downtown Augusta, the Georgia Cyber Center, home of Augusta University's School of Computer and Cyber Sciences, boasts two adjacent buildings totaling 332,000-square-feet.

This unique facility is designed so a student can attend a class and then go to an internship of a potential employer in the same building. Classes will be taught by faculty from Augusta University, the U.S. Army Cyber School, Cyber Protection Brigade, and NSA Georgia. Partnerships here will impact K-12, academia, the health care industry, all levels of government, and the business community.

The connections fostered at this facility will continue to open many doors into the future for cybersecurity research, workforce development, and entrepreneurship, making Augusta, Georgia a hub for talent within the cyber industry.
