Engineering-Concentration in Security, PhD

The Department of Computer Science offers the PhD in Security Degree Program since 2008 for students who are interested in research security areas. The nation-wide unique specialty offers the security curriculum for students to study and conduct multi-disciplinary research in areas of cyber security, physical security, and homeland security, which have become critical and increasingly urgent in today’s personal, business, and government operations. This new multi-disciplinary concentration integrates the existing curriculum and research initiatives, and meets the grand challenges of security with the quality expected from the University of Colorado.

The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have designated the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity Defense Education (CAE/CD). This designation covers academic years 2014 through 2021.
