    For high school students interested in computer science, electrical engineering, or math, a new Cyber Security minor at The Citadel offers additional career and scholarship opportunities. The Electrical Engineering major at The Citadel is one of the 3 engineering majors (Civil, Electrical and Mechanical) all of which offer the opportunity to take on additional majors. A popular dual major for Electrical Engineering majors is Computer Science. The article below was recently issued by the college and appeared in local news story:

    NSA lauds The Citadel for cybersecurity training

    As seen in The Post and Courier, April 28, 2016. Written by Paul Bowers

    The public military college’s fledgling cybersecurity program is getting a big boost of credibility. The Citadel recently earned designation from the National Security Agency as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense, becoming the second college in the state to earn the mark after the University of South Carolina.
    Provost Connie Book said the new laurel will be important as Citadel graduates seek jobs, not just in military and government, but also in areas like health care and business.
    “For us, having this new designation is critically important for our future,” Book said. “It speaks to the unique proposition of a military college in modern day, when so many of the services of our defense system are contracted out to key companies.”
    Shankar Banik, an associate professor in The Citadel’s math department, said the NSA designation will give students a leg up when they enter the job market. Citadel students will also be eligible to apply for scholarships through the Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship Program and the Federal Cyber Service Scholarship for Service Program.
    TheNSA websitecurrently lists 124 colleges and universities as National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense.

    think you meant NSA, which is funny because NAS was banned (more than once) from the this forum for repeated attacks on The Citadel.

    I notice you are a new member, this is your second post.
    How do we know you are not him? Or maybe you are his nemesis who was also banned.
    Intrigue.
