dynamic and growing program with 1,195 undergraduates and 139 graduate
students, including 60 Ph.D. students. The major research units in the
department include: the Institute for Cyber Security, which operates the
FlexCloud and FlexFarm laboratories dedicated to cyber security research,
and the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS), which
focuses on cyber security maturity of cities and communities and also
conducts nation-wide Cyber Security Defense Competitions for college and
high school students. The research activities and experimental facilities
have been well supported by several federal research and infrastructure
grants. UTSA recently received a large 5-year NSF CREST grant on
investigating cloud security and privacy. CIAS recently received a large
5-year grant from the Department of Homeland Security to set up a national
standards organization for information sharing and analysis. The Department
recently also received a large 5-year grant from the Army Research
Laboratory to investigate the modeling and prediction of cyber attacks as
well as several grants from other funding agencies. UTSA undergraduate
cyber security programs are collectively ranked #1 in a 2014 survey; the
graduate programs are ranked #2 in a 2016 listing. The recently establish
Army Research Laboratory—South at UTSA provides additional opportunities
for Cyber Security research and funding. See for
