Who We Are

Since the early 1980s, NSU's College of Computing and Engineering has been giving our students an unfair advantage in their careers. We were a pioneer in creating the distance learning that is known today as online/virtual education. So computing and technology is in our DNA, literally.

We understood early on that flexibility was paramount in helping students earn their degrees – not everyone can take time out of their lives to attend class on campus. And now:

  • Our alumni work at Fortune 500 organizations, various federal and government agencies and universities around the world.
  • All our classes are taught only by experienced faculty members with doctoral degrees from accredited institutions.
  • Our faculty are internationally recognized scholars in computing, engineering and information science.
  • We focus on degree programs that prepare you for careers listed by U.S. News & World Report 100 Best Jobs in 2021.
  • The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have recognized NSU's curricula in information security – the second school in Florida to receive such recognition.


Nova Southeastern University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) to award associate’s, baccalaureate, master’s, educational specialist, doctorate, and professional degrees.

In addition to its regional accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, NSU has been designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance / Cyber Defense Education by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). NSA and DHS have certified that NSU’s curriculum in information security meets or exceeds the requirements and standards expected of a leader in cybersecurity research and education. NSU has been awarded a chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), the International Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines. Most of the college’s graduate programs have been certified for inclusion in the Southern Regional Education Board’s Electronic Campus.
