IT pros rank University of Texas San Antonio best school for cybersecurity

Computerworld - The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) tops a somewhat unexpected list of schools that are considered by security practitioners as the best in the country for cybersecurity courses and degree programs.

In a Hewlett-Packard-sponsored survey of about 2,000 certified IT security professionals, UTSA's 14 undergraduate and graduate programs in areas such as digital forensics, secure design and intrusion detection and response, were ranked first for academic excellence and practical relevance.

The experience and expertise of program faculty and the school's professional reputation within the security community were also factors that contributed to the school's top ranking.

Norwich University, a private military college in Northfield, Vt., garnered the second spot, while Mississippi State University near Starkville was third. Norwich's Computer Science and Information Assurance (CSIA) program and Mississippi State's Center for Computer Security Research are National Security Agency-certified centers of academic excellence in information security.

Rounding out the top 10 were Syracuse University and Carnegie Mellon University, which tied for the fourth spot; Purdue University was fifth; the University of Southern California, the University of Pittsburgh and George Mason University were in a seventh place tie. Eighth place went to West Chester University, in West Chester, Penn., while the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Washington in Seattle completed the list.
