Top U.S. Computer Science Undergrad Programs Flunk Cybersecurity (Forbes)


A new study out from CloudPassage — a cloud security firm based in San Francisco — concludes that the American higher-education system is failing at preparing students for careers in cybersecurity.

CloudPassage hired a third party consultant to analyze computer science programs at 121 universities listed on three rankings which included U.S. News and World Report’s Best Global Universities for Computer Science, Business Insider’s Top 50 best computer-science and engineering schools in America, and QS World University Rankings 2015 – Computer Science & Information.

The University of Michigan (ranked #12 on the U.S. News & World Report’s list) is the only program in the top 36 which requires a cybersecurity course for graduation.
