Cyber Defense National Champions


At RIT, our sports teams aren’t the only ones raising banners to the rafters. In 2013, our student Cyber Defense team won the Collegiate Cyber Defense National Championship in San Antonio, TX and that same year RIT opened one of the first dedicated Computing Security programs in the country. With world-class faculty, unparalleled industry partnerships, and student groups dedicated to cybersecurity research, it’s no wonder RIT has been named a National Center for Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency.

At RIT, greatness can be achieved in the classroom or on the playing field, with a laptop or a lacrosse stick. Our students are many things: inventors, geeks, dreamers, designers, hackers. We’re proud to add champions to that list.
