About the Augusta University Cyber Institute
The Augusta University Cyber Institute was established in June 2015 to enable, support and champion meaningful, innovative, interdisciplinary research and education for cybersecurity. The institute was recently recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. Its work focuses on collaborative partnerships to impact K-12 and higher education, health care, government and business communities.
Recently, the university also signed a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence to share resources and help develop a cyber-trained workforce through education, innovation, research and outreach. For the past two summers, the university has hosted GenCyber camps for high school students and teachers. The camps were sponsored by grants from the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.
