Morgan Melton is junior at Grand Canyon University and studying information technology with an emphasis in cyber security. Morgan’s favorite memory since being a GCU student takes us back to his freshman year: He had just transferred into his first computer class and knew nothing about the subject. He went to his professor’s office and told him, “I know nothing special about computers, but teach me everything you possibly can.”

Starting roughly 3.8 billion years ago, a war was started – the pistol of the Grand Race for Planetary Dominance was fired and genetically based organisms (that’s all of them) began adapting, shuffling their cards and applying new techniques in their will to reign over the animals that were slower to adapt. Some mechanisms worked, and the empires of their respective kingdoms expanded. Some techniques failed, however, and the inventors of such machinations were forced to fold – this planet was no longer theirs. Those who did survive found themselves engaged in an even more difficult conflict: Their opponents had upgraded their weaponry, forged alliances and purchased vassals.

Cyber forensics faces similar issues to other forensic disciplines and uses comparable processes. However, this field involves collecting, analyzing and reporting on digital information while using methods that allow for legal admission. Cyber forensics can be used to prevent and detect crime as well as provide digital evidence to settle disputes. If you think that you’d enjoy learning about cyber forensics investigations as part of your coursework, then consider Grand Canyon University’s Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with an Emphasis in Cyber Security degree. This degree is designed to ready you for an IT career working with software technology and tools, IT-driven business, cyber security and enterprise information systems.

Ed Koeneman is an electrical engineering technology instructor here at Grand Canyon University. Ed has an impressive background with 25 years of experience as a product design engineer, with 15 of those years spent running a medical device company that Ed and his father founded. The company, Kinetic Muscles, creates rehabilitation devices to help people who have suffered from strokes regain proper function of damaged limbs.

When Ed sold the company, GCU’s engineering program was starting to pick up speed. This was during a time that Ed was mentoring several dozen biomedical engineering students at Arizona State University – it was here that he found his calling and discovered that being a teacher was the right career for him.

What does it take to pioneer a new program at GCU? Just ask Isabelle Ketchum and Samantha White, who will soon be GCU’s first graduates from the new environmental science program.  This program immerses students in environmental biology, chemistry and engineering to prepare them for the demanding fields they are about to enter. Each semester the program continues to grow with students looking to learn more about the challenges facing the environment and creating strategies to keep people safe while bringing greater awareness to the importance of maintaining ecosystems.
