The FSU Panama City ASCENT Program is a 6-year, $23 Million Project, partially funded by Triumph Gulf Coast, Inc., designed to contribute to the development of a strong, regional workforce in cybersecurity and new technologies. ASCENT aims to develop and deliver education and training resources for industry-specific certifications for Northwest Florida students and professionals to position them for job attainment and/or advancement. ASCENT projects focus on increasing the interest of K-12 students in engineering, computer science, information technology, and cybersecurity fields; expanding undergraduate degree programs at FSU Panama City to include Information Technology with a specialization in cybersecurity; and delivering non-credit customized training courses and testing to meet the workforce needs of our community partners.
