LCCC Designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education
The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have designated Lehigh Carbon Community College as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education (CAE2Y). The designation is through academic year 2023. This designation means that LCCC now has a position on the cyber defense landscape.
LCCC is one of 10 higher-education institutions in Pennsylvania with this designation and the only community college.
Higher education plays a key role in addressing the critical shortage of professionals with the skills to contribute to the protection of the National Information Infrastructure. NSA and DHS partner with academic institutions to enhance cybersecurity education nationwide and to develop the next generation of cyber security experts. Prospective schools are designated after meeting stringent CAE criteria and mapping curricula to topics such as cyber threats, data analysis, cryptography, policy, ethics and more.
These criteria are common to all of the four-year institutions that have earned this designation and should allow LCCC students increased transfer opportunities to some of the nation’s top universities.
While many cybersecurity jobs are open to students who attend an accredited cyber degree program, the additional designation helps to ensure that they are studying concepts and practices deemed important by two of the largest employers in the cybersecurity world: the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
