The University of South Florida plans to create a college focused on the rapidly evolving fields of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and computing.

USF is the first university in Florida, and among the first in the nation, to announce plans to create a college dedicated to AI and cybersecurity.

The vision for the college would be to offer undergraduate and graduate programs aligned with USF’s strategic plan and the state’s Programs of Strategic Emphasis to prepare students for high-demand careers, empower faculty to conduct innovative research that leads to new discoveries or technological advancements, grow industry partnerships and promote ethical considerations and trust throughout the digital transformation underway in society.
