Leading Cybersecurity in the Northwest
As one of the National Security Agency’s first seven National Centers of Academic Excellence in cyber defense education, U of I is a leader in advanced cybersecurity training and education.
We are one of the first in the Northwest to offer a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity, and our nationally-recognized faculty have been training students for professional positions for more than three decades.
Through partnerships with leading industry, including global power systems protection leader Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho Power, POWER Engineers and Avista, the U of I College of Engineering has developed a network of state-of-the-art equipment, labs and resources to give undergraduate students opportunities for lab exploration and undergraduate research aimed at strengthening cybersecurity and developing inherently cyber-secure industrial control systems.
