The Campus

Located 20 minutes from LAX, CSUDH is at the heart of a diverse community of Cyber Security Professionals. As enterprise systems grow, the need for cyber security professionals become increasingly apparent. Local businesses who face constant cyber threats include: Northrup Grumman, SpaceX, IBM, Sony, Mattel, DirecTV, and many more. Many of these companies find it challenging to meet the demand to fill information security positions.


In 2011, CSUDH became a founding member of Cyberwatch West, an NSF funded Advanced Technological Education center. As part of this work, CSUDH is charged with developing the Cyber Security skills of faculty for the 13 western United States.

Computer Technology forms the technological infrastructure of modern commerce. It’s the driving force of every industry and permeates everyday life. The ability to combine the power of computing with the management of multimedia information is arguably the key to obtaining ascendancy in any field.

Computer Technology is an ever-evolving, expanding field. The proposed Computer Technology Program will provide students with the background, knowledge, and skills they’ll need to adapt to the dynamic nature of the marketplace. Program faculty will consist of traditional academics as well as industry professionals in order to provide curricular content that is on the cutting edge of industry trends.
