About Idaho Cyber Range
The Idaho Cyber Range was developed through Idaho Gov. Brad Little’s $1 million statewide budget to “meet the needs of Idaho students and businesses by breaking down silos and working together more as an interconnected higher education system."
In 2020, Gov. Little selected U of I to manage funding statewide to support new degree programs, certificates and critical infrastructure. Since then, U of I launched Idaho’s first cybersecurity bachelor’s degree program, adding to existing comprehensive computer science degree programs emphasizing cyber defense. U of I was one of the first Northwest universities to start a cybersecurity master’s program and is on track to launch its doctoral program.
As one of the National Security Agency’s first of seven National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense, U of I has led advanced cybersecurity education and research for three decades. The designation assures students receive academic instruction to produce the qualified workforce that the nation needs.
Using the state’s $1 million announcement, Boise State University and the College of Eastern Idaho have been accredited as National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity. North Idaho College was also nationally recognized among the first two-year programs.
