Currently, the plan is to allow only Armstechs, Armormechs and Synthweavers to create augment kits in 1.3.

The items created by the other crew skills don't fit in with this progression as cleanly - if we decide to allow Artifice or Cybertech to acquire the kits through their commonly created items, under our current systems they would produce kits substantially faster than the other skills. It is safer to open augment kits to a limited set of crew skills.
Unless things change, Cybertechs will be SOL as far as the augment and augment kit market is concerned.
