Technology drives change. SEMO’s cyber and computer science programs are a constant. Accolades. Accreditations. Awards. Groundbreaking programs to create competitive, confident graduates.

Just try to find something not dependent upon a computer. That means the world will need more computer scientists to make everything from electricity to cars go. Mix in keeping all those things safe from data breaches and hacks, and the job market is looking pretty promising. SEMO’s computer science and cybersecurity programs are so strong, we were granted the statewide designation in those areas. Why? There’s our recognition from the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security. We are also 10-time defending state cyber defense champions. Plus, there’s our Cyber Range and our Institute of Cybersecurity where students blend theory with practice. Artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning will impact every aspect of our lives. SEMO is the best choice to harness that technology and build Tomorrow’s Careers Today.
