The School of Computer and Cyber Sciences was launched July 2017 and will be housed in the new Hull McKnight Georgia Cyber Center for Innovation and Training at Augusta University’s Riverfront Campus, scheduled for completion in 2018. The vision of the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences is to become a world leader in cybersecurity education and standardization of secure hardware and software system design, development, delivery, and use. The school provides high-engagement, state-of-the-art technology education, and research across its disciplines.
The school has full authority to present diplomas to Computer Science, Information Technology, and Information Security Management graduates. It offers a concentration in Cyber Security in conjunction with the Information Technology degree and Cyber Defender/Advanced Cyber Defender certificates that can be earned in tandem with any bachelor’s degree or as a stand-alone for post-baccalaureate students. A Healthcare Information Security certificate is available at the graduate level as either a stand-alone certificate or as part of a graduate program.
