Stevens Trains Next Generation of Cybersecurity Specialists
Major data breaches, hacks and identity thefts have become disturbingly commonplace. As the threat continues to escalate, Stevens is helping lead a global effort to anticipate and defend against the next waves of cybercrime.
"Online has been a really good experience for me. I like the flexibility because I work full-time. I save travel time. Stevens online platform makes my time very efficient," says online computer science master's student Mike Scully.
Stevens computer security, computer vision and programming languages program areas are ranked highly by CSRankings.org. CSRankings uses a metrics-based system to weigh departments by their presence at the most prestigious publication venues, which is a more rigorous metric than most ranking systems.
"I would not be here if it weren't for my professors at Stevens, and I owe them a lot! They were always available to give advice and guidance, not only in my research, but also in my career," says computer science alumnus Walter Krawec.
Four computer science faculty members received grants from the National Science Foundation and Office of Naval Research totaling more than $3,200,000: David Naumann, Georgios Portokalidis, Nikos Triandopoulos and Eric Koskinen.
The Department of Computer Science is home to several venerable research centers and laboratories with grants from prominent funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Office of Naval Research (ONR).
The Center for the Advancement of Secure Systems and Information Assurance (CASSIA) performs research in information assurance and cybersecurity.
