Named for retired U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, the center’s key objective is to develop a community-focused Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence that is a regional hub serving all of Texas.
The Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Cyber Intelligence, Innovation, and Security Studies equips students with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience to be the best cybersecurity or culture- and national security-focused graduates.
- The Cyber Intelligence program focuses on the latest developments in cyber defense, information operations, and information security to produce graduates that make significant contributions to the advancement of cybersecurity technology, policy, and the protection of critical digital assets and networks.
- The Security Studies Program focuses foremost on military personnel and federal civilian employees that will compete exceptionally well in the global arena, making lasting contributions to United States national security and economic prowess, and successfully engage in culturally informed interactions with other countries to increase international stability, cooperation and prosperity.
Security Studies Initiatives
ASU’s Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice uses world-class faculty and advanced teaching technologies to educate military and civilian students using cutting-edge, culturally based education that provides them with marketable skills when graduating from our disciplines.
We offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as certificate options to help you advance in your career.
Special Military Programs and Agreements
As a military-friendly institution, we support multiple partnerships with military agencies to apply military training credit to an Angelo State degree.
We are rapidly growing our cybersecurity and artificial intelligence programs and evolving into an innovative leader for the region.
In concert with district and campus leaders, STEM support staff and teachers, ASU creates a culture of cybersecurity through educational curriculum and activities.
Higher Education and Research
We are focused on offering cyber-related degree and certificate programs, as well as a wide range of research opportunities within cybersecurity and AI.
We’ve adopted a “whole-community approach” by engaging the greater San Angelo area.
