UTSA is the place to be for hands-on and relevant cyber security and information systems education.

As one of the first schools in the nation to be certified by the National Security Agency as a Center of Academic Excellence, this means our curriculum meets real-world needs and is viewed as high quality by a leading federal security agency.

The College of Business has been offering cyber security classes since 2001. Our programs are led by world-class researchers and academics, as well as adjuncts who work in security and understand the needs of industry.
