The Georgia university says it's the first higher education institution in the country to offer a cybersecurity specialization focused on hardware. (Getty Images) Augusta University plans to offer three cybersecurity undergraduate programs, putting it in a small but growing group of schools to offer such specializations. The new programs include bachelors of science in cybersecurity, cybersecurity engineering and cyber-operations. According to the public university, the engineering major is the first to be offered by a higher education institution, and one of just a handful of such training programs offered throughout the U.S. Alex Schwarzmann, dean of the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences, the school offering the new programs, said in a press statement that only focusing on software can bestow a false sense of security.
