1 Dakota State University Madison, SD

If you’ve never thought of Madison, S.D., as a technological wonderland, you’ve obviously never visited Dakota State University. This 20-acre rural campus is a regional and national leader in the integration of technology in the learning experiences of all students, but it is particularly noteworthy for turning out professionals ready to make their mark in the industry. DSU is one of only 13 institutions in the country to be designated by the National Security Agency (NSA) as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations. The university’s hands-on “hacking lab” allows students to explore how hackers think, what tools they use, and how software vulnerabilities are identified and exploited – without putting their own computer or information at risk. Graduates are in high demand (100% placement), and the university maintains relationships with government agencies and other industries in need of top-notch cyber security professionals. In addition to programs in network and security administration, computer science, information systems, and computer education, the university offers degrees in some rather untraditional tech disciplines. Biology for information systems combines traditional biology with a background in computer science and information systems to introduce aspiring healthcare professionals to the technologies that are shaping modern science-based industries. Computer game design majors learn 3D design and simulation skills valued not only by the video game industry but also by companies involved with interactive software and digital media. The DSU Gaming Club’s annual Nanocon convention brings together gamers and game designers for a weekend of educational enrichment and fun. The professional and technical communication degree trains students how to effectively convey information through traditional tactics (think reports and manuals) and modern methods (podcasts and web sites) depending on the needs of the client. High-achieving undergrads can earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years through the Technology FastTrack program. Perhaps not surprising for an institution that places a premium on technology, DSU conducts a wealth of online classes – a convenience popular to people living away from campus, including DSU students completing internships.
