Department of Energy's CyberForce Competition
A team of CPP students finished 16th out of 107 teams in the Department of Energy's CyberForce competition where they were tested on their ability to defend critical infrastructures. University of Central Florida was #1, Tennessee Tech was #2 and University of Florida was #3. UC Berkeley (all graduate engineering team) was the only other California team, and they took the 19th spot. Our team was made up of students who are new to cyber competitions with none having participated in a collegiate competition in the past. We had more than 700 students at CPP participate in cyber competitions in some form last year and I am targeting 1,000 for this year. Part of this effort is to engage more students in travel teams. Finally, Dylan Tran, the captain of our CPTC team served as coach for the team. Student coaches is another way that we are growing our cyber competition environment. Part of the selection of the DOE CyberForce competition was the premiere nature of the competition, and the focus on critical infrastructure as well as the link to federal employment. Our team consisted of: Dylan Tran – Coach and CPTC Captain – 3rd year CIS Dan Ortiz – 2nd year MSIS Hyun Suk (Joseph) Shin – 1st year MSIS and CS undergraduate Gerardo Solis – 4th year CS Luke Kimes – 3rd year (transfer from Fullerton College) CS Alexander Chacon – 2nd year CIS Justin Sullivan-Pascual – 1st year CIS
Welcome to the Computer Information Systems (CIS) Department at Cal Poly Pomona. CIS is an option for the degree of business administration. The CIS Department participates in several graduate degrees, including an emphasis in information management in the MBA program, the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA), and a specialized master’s degree in Information Security (MSIS).
CIS emphasizes solving business problems with computing technology. This can be the development of business applications, Internet security and computer forensics, and business intelligence.
The CIS department has been a leader in Information Systems curriculum development and early adopter of new technologies. A curriculum integrated with current technologies will allow CIS students to acquire marketable knowledge and skills for their career.
The CIS program has a “learn-by-doing” approach to teaching in which students participate in technology-based projects through service learning, internships and a mandatory group Senior Project with industry.
When asked about our graduates, employers often say that they “hit the ground running,” “have a can-do attitude,” “are great team leaders” and “are not afraid to work.”
