A Vision for Excellence
Today’s world calls for greater collaboration to protect America’s national security infrastructure. UTSA, recently achieved Carnegie R1 classification as a Tier One institution for research, is leading this charge, armed with world-class faculty and a reputation as the undisputed leader in cybersecurity education.
The university’s National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC) is taking this leadership to the next level, with its powerful ecosystem to engage government, industry and academia to tackle the nation’s greatest cyber threats.
The NSCC will be co-located with UTSA’s School of Data Science. The new facility, located in the heart of the city, will fuel synergies with federal agencies and San Antonio’s tech corridor. The new facility is anticipated to open fully by January 2023.
UTSA is one of the few universities in the nation to hold all three National Center of Excellence designations from the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security, further solidifying its dominance as a leader in cybersecurity. This is in addition to UTSA being home to the #1 cybersecurity program in the nation, according to the Ponemon Institute, and nationally recognized for having the best academic support for its online cybersecurity degree.
