UTICA, N.Y. -- Utica College is now designated as a nationally recognized Center of Academic Excellence in cyber defense education.
The college is one of the first in the country to earn the honor of having both undergraduate and graduate programs in cybersecurity.
The national security agency and the department of homeland security recognized the college for their excellence in cyber defense education.
Getting this designation was no easy task.
“Going through this exhaustive examination of our faculty, our lesson plans, our examinations, all of our assessments. This means that the NSA and DHS trust that we are teaching our students exactly what they need to know,” said Utica College Associate Director Cyber Security Leslie Corbo.
Utica College has also earned the designation from the cyber crime center as a center of digital forensics in academic excellence.
