Putting Texas on the Map
as a Cyber Powerhouse

UTSA is fueling San Antonio’s national reputation as the largest cyber and information security hub outside of Washington, D.C. – second only to our nation’s capital in federal and defense contracting opportunities and concentration of cybersecurity professionals.

Bold Is... cultivating the next generation of cyber leaders

We are leading the charge to protect our national security infrastructure, armed with world-class faculty and a reputation as the undisputed leader in cybersecurity education. UTSA is nationally recognized for having the Best Academic Support for its Online Cybersecurity Degree and is one of the few universities nationally – and only Hispanic Serving Institution – to hold all three National Center of Academic Excellence designations from the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

UTSA's Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII) is a public-private partnership supported by the Department of Energy. CyManII is helping Texan and American manufacturers protect their supply chains from cyberattacks and become more energy-efficient in order to secure global competitiveness.


"UT System selected UTSA to lead the CyManII project due to the university's well-known strengths in cybersecurity and the visionary leadership of its president, Dr. Taylor Eighmy. This groundbreaking endeavor—over 50 organizations strong—has UT System's full endorsement and the absolute confidence of my leadership team."

Bold Is... playing the game differently


UTSA is designing a data intelligence ecosystem unlike any other – the first of its kind in Texas. We are expanding our Downtown Campus with new buildings to house the School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center, as well as a new center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Careers. These transformational projects will weave together academic expertise, public and private synergies and foster a first-class education.

Data Intelligence Ecosystem

Take a virtual tour of San Pedro I, site of UTSA’s new School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center. Opened in January 2023, the school will host over 400 students and serve as the home of 30 world-class faculty members.

UTSA’s National Security Collaboration Center brings together more than 50 partners in government, industry and academia to tackle our nation’s escalating cybersecurity threats.

In 2020, UTSA and Port San Antonio, a 1,900-acre technology and innovation campus, formalized ties to bolster cyber and data innovation. One common mission is to build a high-tech workforce pipeline that can meet the increasing demands required by the defense community and mature industry sectors.
