The University of Arizona is now recognized by DHS and NSA as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE). The August 30th Daily Wildcat article mentions the roll of the SFS scholarship program and cybersecurity research. This designation is expected to not just bring in more educational opportunities, but also more research opportunities. According to Hsinchun Chen, UA Regents professor of MIS and director of Eller’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, this designation came about due to the university’s SFS designation, ongoing cybersecurity research, cybersecurity publications and representation at cybersecurity conferences.
