Welcome to the FIRST four-year undergraduate degree program in Cyber Engineering (CYEN) in the United States!
may be defined as the fusion of computer science
, electrical engineering
, and mathematics
, with the integration of the humanities in order to:
- Research and develop systems solutions across cyberspace;
- Create new structures that have novel functions because of their use across cyberspace;
- Harness the potential of the electromagnetic spectrum in a systematic way; and
- Develop the mathematical structures necessary for engineering across cyberspace.
Like biotechnology and information technology, cyber engineering is a growth industry with potential to greatly change the world in which we live.
The purpose of the undergraduate program at Louisiana Tech University is to prepare graduates with the knowledge and skills in integrating basic computer science, electromagnetic sciences and mathematics with engineering fundamentals to design and develop useful technology while also preparing students to be technical leaders in cyber security with a thorough understanding of the associated security concerns, social and political impacts and ethical consequences.
