Why should you join the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences at Augusta University?

Here's what a few of our faculty had to say:

I joined the faculty at Augusta University because I wanted to help build and craft a new, nationally known computer science program from a research and educational perspective. The chance to help grow the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
