The Cyber Science degree is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
To ensure the success of our graduates, we prepare them to achieve the following Program Educational Objectives within two to five years after graduation:
- Recognition as successful Air Force officers through demonstration of their ability to: rapidly acquire required knowledge, lead others effectively, apply ethical and moral standards, improve unit performance by application of organizational skills, make sound decisions based on critical thinking, communicate effectively
- Selection for career training on, or ahead of, schedule, and for a progression of assignments of increasing responsibility
- Demonstrated ability to solve Air Force technical problems
- Success in continuing education
These objectives are assessed through Student Outcomes—the skills, knowledge and behaviors students should acquire before graduation. The outcomes for this program are:
- An ability to analyze a problem, and to identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
- An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the discipline.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences about technical information
- An ability to make informed judgements in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
- An ability to function effectively on teams to establish goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, manage risk, and produce deliverables.
- An ability to apply security principles and practices to the environment, hardware, software, and human aspects of a system.
- An ability to analyze and evaluate systems with respect to maintaining operations in the presence of risks and threats.
