Center for Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a fast-growing field with severe workforce shortage. Michigan Tech is one of the strongest contenders in cybersecurity education and research at the State of Michigan.
The Center for Cybersecurity has two main goals. The first goal is to research in the highly critical areas of information security and biometrics, privacy protection, trusted software engineering, security in mobile computing and wireless communications. The second goal is to advance the practice and public awareness of cybersecurity through various education and outreach activities.
Michigan Tech is currently pursuing the National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE–CD) managed by the National Security Agency (NSA). The Center for Cybersecurity serves as the CAE-CD cyber center. For more information on CAE-CD, visit the following webpage:
