Our students were competing against Stanford, Cal Poly, UC Davis, Berkley and Riverside. We have consistently beaten all the UCs. We came third after Stanford and Cal Poly.

National recognition for CNIT Cybersecurity

In Sep/19, the CNIT Department was recognized by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE)! This is due to great group work that was started and led by professor Sam Bowne with the creation and updates of many important courses in the Cybersecurity area! This group has grown to a point that now we have alumni students that are faculty members helping the Cybersecurity program to grow! Congratulations to all CNIT staff involved in the process that led to this great recognition!
