About the Program

This degree program stems from our belief that cyber security can no longer be an afterthought or an added layer; it must be an integrated component throughout the four-year curriculum. The major is new, but Iowa State has been teaching and researching cyber security since 1995, making it one of the oldest programs in the country. Students are gaining a strong foundation in computer engineering concepts while applying engineering methodology to solve complex cyber security problems. Find out more.
