For more than two decades, The University of Tulsa has been at the forefront of cybersecurity research and education. TU has been a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Education since 2000 – one of the first 14 institutions awarded this distinction. TU also is recognized by the federal government as a CAE in IA Research and Cyber Operations. TU alumni are employed in leading roles in the private and public sectors as well as academia.
Cybersecurity skills are in high demand, yet supply is lacking. The industry estimates that more than one million cybersecurity jobs worldwide remain unfilled, with more than 200,000 of those in the United States. TU alumni are well equipped to meet the demand and serve in intellectually stimulating and personally rewarding roles that strengthen national and global security. Graduates have experience in the theory, concepts and techniques of information assurance and network defense in real-world settings. TU’s computer science graduate programs serve students with backgrounds in computer science as well as other disciplines.
