Northern Kentucky University has been recently ranked as the top university in Kentucky for awarding the most Computer Science degrees to women.

Over 28% of the university's Computer Science faculty members are women, an unusually high percentage in a male-dominated field. NKU faculty helped establish the Tri-State Women in Computing Conference (TRIWiC) in 2011, an annual conference that celebrates women in computer science. NKU is also one of the top-ranked universities in the country and the highest-ranked in the Cincinnati Tri-State area for women in computing, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. Many graduates of the program go on to become business leaders.

WiCys is a group that supports women in advancing and retaining positions in Cybersecurity. WiCys offers unique training, networking, and scholarships to its members. It is open to all students.
