We are excited to announce our designation as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (NCAE-CD)! This designation is awarded to regionally accredited academic institutions offering cybersecurity-related degrees. Messiah’s Cybersecurity Education Program faculty and staff dedicated over two years of their collective effort to gather the evidence necessary to achieve this designation. We are looking forward to participating and contributing to the broader CAE community, collaborating with other institutions in pedagogy and technical expertise, and providing opportunities for scholarships and full-time employment for students with various agencies across the Department of Defense.
