Industry sponsorship is an integral component to the success of this course. We are continually looking for additional sponsors.

The objective of this class is to provide students with “real-life” engineering experience. Students will be organized into teams to conceive, design, and implement a solution to a sizeable, industry provided cybersecurity engineering problem. Our plan is to address all engineering project elements from the business acquisition process through detailed design, and verification. In addition to the technical skills needed to be a cybersecurity engineer, important “real life” skills such as teamwork, project management, communications, ethics and engineering professionalism will be featured. The course will conclude with an industry/faculty IEEE formatted paper and poster session.

Three elements of Sponsorship

  1.  A real-life Engineering Project Work-scope description for a hardware or hardware-based cybersecurity engineering project that is sizeable and meaningful to your company
  2.  A commitment of a minimum of four hours per month to support proposal and design reviews
  3.  Sponsorship fee

Benefits of Sponsorship

Your company will receive best effort deliverables to your statement of work. You will have access to a faculty subject matter expert who will be assigned to the project. Economically, you will receive the work efforts of four to six students for 30 weeks at a minimum of three hours per week. In addition, you will actively engage the students and be able to evaluate them as potential hiring candidates. Most of all mentoring and guiding students is a very rewarding experience.
