Greetings From the Dean
Welcome to the spring 2019 edition of DataBytes. We have had much to be thankful for in the School of Engineering and Computer Science over the past year! One year ago we were on the hunt for three new faculty members to fill vacant positions. God blessed, bringing three highly qualified professors to fill the vacant positions. You'll meet them below.
You'll also read about the success of our newest major, civil engineering, which has far exceeded our enrollment expectations. In fact, the Trustees recently approved construction of a dedicated civil engineering facility, which should be ready fall 2020.
Finally, we have experienced much growth in the cyber operations concentration in our computer science (CS) program. The cyber concentration underwent scrutiny by a visiting team of ABET evaluators during their fall visit as part of a pilot program to accredit cyber majors. Having been recognized by the NSA for the strength of our cyber operations content, our CS program has become a growing endeavor. Additionally, Dr. Seth Hamman was appointed the Director of Cedarville University’s new Center for the Advancement of Cybersecurity, positioning Cedarville as a major supplier of cyber graduates to companies looking to strengthen their defense against cyber attacks.
My hope is that this spring’s newsletter will bring you joy and gladness of heart, and raise your level of awe in our God who showers us with every spiritual blessing, both eternal and temporal.
Robert Chasnov, Ph.D., P.E.
