Colorado Mesa University (CMU) has recently established a Cybersecurity Center with an annual $300K in funding from the state of Colorado.  The goal of the Cybersecurity Center is to provide hands-on research and training activities to our students and be a liaison for the local community to engage in cyber activities. The Center’s overarching goal is to help secure our local community and bolster the cybersecurity skills in the state and the country. 

The Cybersecurity Center students and participants have access to experts in entrepreneurship and innovation as well as various equipment and resources provided by the Maverick Innovation Center. Moreover, the Cybersecurity Center has dedicated workspace with its own hardware, software, and network resources to help participants engage in real-world hands-on cybersecurity research and projects ranging from penetration testing to server virtualization and machine learning.  

The Cybersecurity Center hires students throughout the year (including winter and summer breaks) to work on various cyber-related projects and research activities.
