Engineering & Computer Science Department
Engineering and technology are among the fastest-growing, highest-paid occupational fields in the United States. In addition, cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing careers across all industry sectors with a shortfall of 1.5 million job openings projected for 2019. Many already in the cyber field do not have the expertise required in this dynamic threat environment. Regent’s Engineering & Technology Department seeks to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to be effective in these fields. Regent was named as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) for the B.S. in Cybersecurity by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is among only four percent of universities in the nation to receive this merit, according to the latest data published by NICE (National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, 2018). Regent uniquely integrates leading-edge instruction with the exploration of ethical, spiritual, and social responsibility.
