    @VishG28 - how do you measure good? They are highly ranked. They are an NSA CAE for Cyber Security. They have a good rep for robotics. It depends on what you are looking for. My DS is in his second year with Junior standing (AP credits) and has a research internship in Germany this summer. He is on track to graduate with a masters in 4 years. He likes the faculty. One note on their approach, you will not see a C++ or Python class. They choose to teach developing solutions with all the tools available. Along the way, you will learn about the various programming languages.

    Is is National Security Agency, Center of Academic Excellence. The NSA has criteria for schools that want to offer a cybersecurity major, minor or concentration. I assume it will eventually carry some weight when you have a degree from a university with at least this level of certification. Or, maybe its just fluff.
