Another success achieved by our CNIT Cyber Security students. The Regional Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition (CPTPC) was hosted by Stanford this year from October 11 through October 13. Our students were competing against Stanford, Cal Poly, UC Davis, Berkley and Riverside. We have consistently beaten all the UCs. We came third after Stanford and Cal Poly. Wonderful achievement for a two-year community college! It is the quality of our professors and dedication of students that makes it possible!
In Sep/19, the CNIT Department was recognized by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE)! This is due to great group work that was started and led by professor Sam Bowne with the creation and updates of many important courses in the Cybersecurity area! This group has grown to a point that now we have alumni students that are faculty members helping the Cybersecurity program to grow! Congratulations to all CNIT staff involved in the process that led to this great recognition!
The beginning of Fall/19 term brought some great news to the CNIT Department as now the CNIT 133M - Mobile Web Dev with HTML, CSS, and JS - has been approved to be a transferable course to the UC System. Here is the list of approved courses.
Celebrating students' achievements!
The celebration happened on 5/15/2019 at the end of the last Department Meeting and CNIT instructors were proud to see many names in the AS Degree and students that got jobs or internships related to CNIT area!
