A True Learning Community
  • The classes are the perfect mix between hands-on learning and academics. I’ve made lifelong friends, and I’ve found my passion for cyber security at UTSA.

  • Cyber security is an interesting, but challenging major. It is like solving a new puzzle every day. I love my major because in the future I can use my knowledge to prevent hacking, and that will have positive impacts on the digital and physical world.
