National Security Agency (NSA)'s NCAE-C NSU_eHACKERs Student Club




National Security Agency (NSA)'s NCAE-C NSU_eHACKERs Student Club

The National Security Agency (NSA) and its affiliated federal agencies support educational programs designed to establish higher education in the fields of cybersecurity throughout the country. The NSA have designated Nova Southeastern University (NSU) as a National Center of Academic Excellence (NCAE) in Cybersecurity - Cyber Defense (CD) through academic year 2028.

NSU_eHACKERs is a student club (e for Ethical!) that is part of NSU’s Center for Information Protection, Education, and Research (CIPhER). It is open to all College of Computing and Engineering (CCE) students pursuing an undergraduate, master's, or doctoral degree with interest in cybersecurity. 

Our purpose is to:

  • To bring awareness of security in the cyber space and NSU Cybersecurity programs to welcome anyone that wants to learn about ethical hacking and cybersecurity in general.
  • To engage in Capture the Flag (CTF) teams that represent NSU Sharks at Hackathons, CTF events and any (ethical) hacking competition that we can participate in - a training ground for ethical hackers.
  • Additionally, we aim to provide information sessions from industry experts and help prepare anyone to get a job in cybersecurity.
  • All in good faith to prepare as many cybersecurity experts as we can and bring consciousness to every one of the dangers of the Internet, we all love to use.
