The countdown to the opening of the Hull McKnight Cyber Center is on. Representatives from Georgia Technology Authority gave an inside peek at what the auditorium of the cyber center will look like.
The classroom is expected to seat more than 340 people. Director of Augusta University Cyber Institute, Joanne Sexton says AU will be able to extend new resources to students in the new building.
“This facility gives us the huge opportunity to extend what we were able to do,” said Sexton.
AU Cyber Institute won’t be the only college in the new $100 million building. They will be sharing it with Augusta Technical college.
“Well, we plan to bring our entire associates degree of cybersecurity downtown for the training,” explained the I.T. Dean at Augusta Tech, Tammy O’Brien. “That will allow the students even more opportunity to not only receive training here but to interact with numerous opportunities they may not had before.”
