Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations

The Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operation (CAE-CO) is a collaborative venture, drawing on the expertise of faculty from three UC colleges along with local industry representatives. 

The CAE-CO includes faculty from the departments of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Information Technology, Political Science, Criminal Justice as well as adjuncts from Northrup Grumman Xetron and GE Aviation.

UC offers a technical, interdisciplinary curriculum centered in fields such as computer science, computer engineering, information technology, political science, and criminology. Our educational offerings covers the entire cybersecurity spectrum -- human behavior and strategic policy analysis, software and network integration, algorithm development, data encryption and information security analytics.

The CAE-CO supports the government’s effort to better protect cyberspace.  “The nation increasingly needs professionals with highly technical cyber skills to help keep America safe today and to help the country meet future challenges and adapt with greater agility“ according to Dr. Stephen LaFountain, Dean of the College of Cyber at the National Security Agency.

For more on our educational training and work centered on national strategy, visit the Department of Political Science at UC McMicken College of Arts & Sciences.
