St. Andrew Uni will implement joint master’s program in cyber security in cooperation with Northern Kentucky Uni

In cooperation with the University of North Kentucky, St. Andrew, the First-Called Georgian University of the Georgian Patriarchate, will implement a joint master’s program in cyber security.

The Minister of Education and Science of Georgia, Mikheil Chkhenkeli, held a meeting with the delegation of the University of North Kentucky in the United States, which was attended by representatives of the St. Andrew the First-Called Georgian University of the Georgian Patriarchate led by Reverend Jacob.

According to the Minister, the implementation of the new master’s program will contribute to the introduction of best international practices in the field of cyber security in Georgia.

Mikheil Chkhenkeli noted that the cooperation between St. Andrew, the First-Called Georgian University of North Kentucky and the Georgian Patriarchate is especially important for him as a dual citizen of Georgia and the United States. According to the Minister, this exemplary collaboration will contribute to the development and internationalization of teaching quality.

For their part, the representatives of the University of North Kentucky thanked Mikheil Chkhenkeli for his support and said that it was a great honour for them to work on a new master’s program with St. Andrew, the First-Called Georgian University of the Georgian Patriarchate.

The Plenipotentiary Representative of the Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia at the University, Reverend Jacob, thanked the Georgian and American governments for their support and expressed hope that cooperation with the University of North Kentucky would further expand.

Given the ongoing socio-political processes in the world, cybersecurity issues are extremely important. Against the background of security challenges, the role and importance of cyber security are growing due to the demand for specialists in this field in the labour market. That is why it was decided to develop a master’s program in cyber security within the framework of cooperation.

It should be noted that after completing the master’s program in cyber security, graduates will be awarded both the Northern Kentucky and Sangu academic degrees (so-called double degrees).

The meeting from the University of North Kentucky delegation was attended by François Leroy, Executive Director of the Center for Global Involvement and International Relations, Kevin Kirby, Dean of the College of Informatics, and Maureen Doyle, Head of the Department of Computer Science. Rector Irakli Brachuli, Chancellor Tamaz Vachnadze and other representatives of the University from St. Andrew, the First-Called Georgian University of the Georgian Patriarchate, took part in the meeting.

The meeting was also attended by Tamar Makharashvili, First Deputy Minister of Education and Science of Georgia, Nunu Mitskevich, Deputy Minister, and Ketevan Chachava, Executive Director of the Center for Development and Democracy (CDD), a non-governmental organization.
