Elite Designation for Cyber Ops Program From NSA

A program at the University of Arizona that began only 18 months ago has been recognized as one of the best in the country for 2018-2019.

The UA’s program in cyber operations, based at its Sierra Vista campus and taught both traditionally and online, has received official designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations, or CAE-CO, by the National Security Agency, an arm of the U.S. Department of Defense.
