Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Cyber Security Graduate Certificate

Cybercrime-related issues especially impact the State of Florida because a significant part of the state's economic development comes from tourism, international banking and high-tech industries. The number of scientists, engineers and experts needed with special skills in cyber security exceeds the number available. The Cyber Security certificate provides opportunities for graduate students to expand their knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the cyber security field. Due to their extensive expertise and facilities, the departments of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences have jointly designed the Cyber Security certificate. This 12-credit certificate program has two tracks: Computer Science (CS) and Mathematics (Math).

Tracks
CS Track: The Cyber Security certificate with a track in Computer Science will be granted to a student who completes four 3-credit courses as follows: three 3-credit courses from the CS Cyber Security course list and one 3-credit course from either the CS or the Math Cyber Security course list.

Math Track: The Cyber Security certificate with a track in Mathematics will be granted to a student who completes four 3-credit courses as follows: three 3-credit courses from the Math Cyber Security course list and one 3-credit course from either the Math or the CS Cyber Security course list.

Admission
CS Track: Open to students who have a B.S. degree in Computer Science or in a related field of Science or Engineering and a GPA of at least 3.0. Students must satisfy the prerequisites for each course in the program. All four courses must be completed with a GPA of 3.0 or better. All course materials are in English; all international students must demonstrate proficiency in English to enter the program.

Math Track: Open to students who have a bachelor's degree in mathematics or in a related field and a GPA of at least 3.0. Students must satisfy the prerequisites for each course in the program. All four courses must be completed with a GPA of 3.0 or better. All course materials are in English; all international students must demonstrate proficiency in English to enter the program.
