Professor Wins Cyber-Security Training Grant

Dr. Mohammad Husain

Computer Science Professor Mohammad Husain has received a grant for $1.8 million from the National Science Foundation to create a cyber-security training program for students.

His project,”An Interdisciplinary, Learning-by-Doing Approach  to Identify and Prepare Cyber Warriors,” will focus on student recruitment, hands-on training, participation in the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition and National Cyber League, undergraduate research, and professional development for faculty.

The grant will fund the project for five years and will make it possible to provide scholarships to students participating in the program. Students will also engage in community service outside of the university by participating in outreach to K-12 students.
