Higher Education

On campus and online. Wherever students learn, we make it possible through secure networks, safe campuses and enhanced audiovisual experiences. DES is an approved contractor for top-tier universities in Western Pennsylvania including Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University. 

“This facility gives our students an advantage. They learn and then walk across the hall and work in a real, live security operations center. The hands-on experience is invaluable.”
