Niagara's ROTC program shines in cyber warfare training

LEWISTON — Niagara University's ROTC program turns out more second lieutenants for the Army Cyber Branch — focusing on cyber warfare and developing software — than any other program of its kind in the country. The U.S. Military Academy at West Point follows a separate process to assess cyber officers.

Niagara's ROTC cadets receive training through the university’s undergraduate program in computer and information sciences, as well as a minor offering in computer crime. They may also enter a new master’s degree program in information security and digital forensics. In 2017, 5,246 ROTC cadets were assessed for the Cyber Branch. Niagara graduated two of the 60 chosen.

Niagara’s ROTC program ranked in the top three of the nation's 275 programs in 2017. For information, visit or or call 286-8444.
