In response to the growing need for professionals skilled in the protection of digital information, the University of Alabama will offer a degree in cyber security.

The University’s board of trustees recently approved the Bachelor of Science degree, which will be offered this fall. The degree will be housed in the UA department of computer science within the College of Engineering.

“We are always looking for opportunities to expand our degree offerings in response to the needs of industry and the desires of our prospective students,” said Dr. Chuck Karr, dean of UA’s College of Engineering. “Certainly, we expect the new degree program in cyber security to produce graduates who will accept important jobs in Alabama, and across the nation, in this area that is becoming critical to a wide array of entities. Our faculty have worked hard to ensure the degree program will be of value to our industrial and government partners.”
