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.
Dr. Harley Eades
Assistant Professor, Computer Science
Why did I choose Augusta University? Augusta University and the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences leadership have a bold vision for the future of our school that involves excellence in education and research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Knowing that the state of Georgia has made a major capital and human investment in Georgia's cyber economy means the opportunities are boundless for the future of our school.
Dr. James Smith
Assistant Professor, Information Technology
At the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences, I have had fantastic opportunities to teach talented students, collaborate with local military and industry partners and be a part of the growing cybersecurity community here in Augusta. With the opening of the Georgia Cyber Center, the chance to work with top-tier organizations in this industry will bring incredible opportunities for our school and our students.
Dr. Michael Nowatkowski
Program Director, Cyber Defense
The opportunities that await with Augusta University's School of Computer and Cyber Sciences are comparable with well-established and recognized universities. The School offers a competitive teaching workload and small classes, focusing on quality of teaching, which is an excellent opportunity to involve students at all levels in my research activities. I am thrilled to be a part of building a new high-quality research and teaching institution.
