Mission

The mission of The Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Sciences is to educate and prepare students to be lifelong learners and professionals in computer and cyber sciences. We seek to challenge students to develop skills in computer and cyber sciences, to think logically, and to make sound decisions through our six major academic programs:  Artificial Intelligence, Computer Game Design, Computer Science, Cyber Defense, Cyber Operations, and Network and Security Administration.

The College offers Ph.D. in Cyber Operations, Cyber Defense, and Computer Science; masters degrees in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science and Cyber Defense; and baccalaureate degrees in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Game Design, Computer Science, Cyber Operations and Network and Security Administration. Also, the college offers an Associate of Science degree in Network and Security Administration and Software Development which articulates with the related four-year degree. DSU has a fast track program for certain majors. Students who might be eligible should contact their advisor.  In addition to course work in the academic setting, the College provides opportunities for students to learn through work and consulting experience. Internships and supervised professional practices are available in most programs.
