The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems is home of the Seidenberg CyberSecurity Institute and is designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education(IAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)—the first school with this designation in the New York Metropolitan Area.
Seidenberg faculty work on research grants funded by government agencies; including the Department of Defense, the Army Research Office (ARO) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DAPRA). They have developed a computer forensics lab with assistance from Cengage Learning.
Faculty members have assisted commercial organizations on security issues (such as Bank of New York) and mentor undergraduate and graduate research and projects within the community.
According to Jim Gosler, the founding director of the CIA’s Clandestine Information Technology Office, the United States only has about 1,000 security specialists with the skills required to operate effectively in cyberspace, while it needs 10,000 to 30,000 such individuals. Similar expressions of growing need have been made by experts in industry.
Historically corporations have sought the opportunity to work with Pace faculty and students in the cybersecurity arena (where thousands of Pace students have made an impact through internships and employment.)
In response to this critical moment in the present and future of cybersecurity the Seidenberg School recognizes the demand and offers opportunities for global and local corporations to partner with the University.
Saving lives virtually! Telehealth delivers health care at a distance!
When your loved one faces an emergency, would you want the best care possible along with the latest technology?
- A doctor you know and trust cannot be in the ER with you physically, but can be virtually
- During the middle of the night, you need a radiologist to read your x-rays immediately
Telehealth delivers medical related services and information via telecommunications to populations who have shortages of specialty health care providers or access to quality care, by using emerging technologies.
The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems’ initiative is addressing technical, business, legal, policy, and strategic issues. These issues are being addressed to support the implementation of telehealth services, incorporating on-site/off-site personnel, and the application of data mining and other emerging technologies.
According to US News and World Report, Pace University ranked #1 for their Online Bachelor’s Degree programs, NACTEL and iPace. Pace also placed #13 for Best Online Graduate Computer Information Technology Programs.
We are leveraging our faculty and student research and practice on evolving collaborations, learning places and tools in our work with adult learners, k-12 education professionals, corporate and community partners. Examples of our work are:
