Cybersecurity is a core research strength at UTSA. We have built the top-ranked program in the nation, and our reputation is attracting more and more attention from policy makers and business leaders.
Last week, I traveled to Washington, D.C., with a UTSA team to brief representatives from the White House, Congress, government agencies and the business community on UTSA's growing prominence in cybersecurity research and education.
Cybersecurity has come a long way at UTSA since we began offering our first course in 1999, the year I became university president. From that small start, our program has grown to 14 undergraduate and graduate degrees in the colleges of Business, Sciences and Engineering. We've also become a critical part of the military's San Antonio cybersecurity command – the largest outside of the nation's capital – and a national leader in the field.
This year, a survey of top security experts named our cybersecurity program the best in the nation. We achieved this by recruiting world-class faculty, attracting top students and creating partnerships that enhance our ability to conduct ground-breaking research.
UTSA is committed to advancing our leadership role in cybersecurity research and education and in the nation's cyber defense. Meetings like those last week in Washington will result in new partnerships that allow us to accomplish even more.
Our faculty and students have built the best cybersecurity program in the country, and their work is getting noticed. That's what you'd expect from a university well on its way to Tier One recognition.
