“The LSUS computer Science Department is excited that our cyber security degree received this ranking,” Department Chair Richard Watson said. “We are continually growing and enhancing all of our degree plans. We are currently working with GDIT to inject more industry standard technologies into our cyber security courses and to broaden our course offerings in the area.” 

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program at LSUS aims to cultivate leaders of technology and change, who will contribute to technological and economic development in the state, region and beyond.

“The Cyber Collaboratory provides many benefits to the students in all our programs,” Watson said. “Besides the fact that it gives our students access to a wide variety of cutting-edge technologies that they can use, it also attracts industrial partners who are often interested in providing internships to our students and in working with students and faculty on research projects.”
