Inside the Program

Students learn about cybersecurity first-hand

There is a growing need for cybersecurity expertise in the Wichita area. To answer that call, the WSU Hub for Cybersecurity Education and Awareness (HCEA) was created on campus.

As a student, you have the ability to work at the group and learn first-hand about cybersecurity. This direct involvement prepares you for a job delivering the highest level of cybersecurity and IT support.


As a cybersecurity student, you'll take classes in applied computing fundamentals, cybersecurity awareness, networking, programming and scripting, and cyber operations.


WSU’s vast industry connections — and experience-based learning for every major — gives applied-computing students the chance to grow their professional network, build a resume and earn a paycheck, all while still in school, leading to high-paying, high-demand careers.
