 Through a unique blend of computer science, engineering, intelligence gathering, security, and management, the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Intelligence and Security from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will prepare graduates for a host of opportunities within countless companies, government agencies, and even entrepreneurial endeavors.


Business conducted over computer networks will only continue to increase and e-commerce is growing on a global scale. The need for computer security specialists continues to rise. Companies must have policies and systems to forestall compromises of their data.

Graduates are prepared to lead, manage, administer, and even to establish organizations focused on the field of cybersecurity.

Early in 2014, ERAU Prescott founded the United States’ first College of Security and Intelligence. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has long been positioned as a leader in areas related to technology, so it was a natural progression to launch into this field that is complementary to the other safety- and security-related degrees at ERAU. It is one of only a few universities in the southwest region of the U.S. to offer a degree program in Cybersecurity.

Led by a faculty whose wide range of knowledge and expertise spans government, academia, and computer science roles, the B.S. in Cyber Intelligence and Security program offers a high-tech, hands-on academic experience.
