Preparing Our Undergraduates to Enter a Cyber World

Abstract : Today’s students have grown up with computer-based technology and need to be prepared to enter a career in a digital world. This includes an understanding of the broader implications of technology such as the growing threat of cyber-crime and cyber-terrorism, cyber-ethics, the legal and social implications of technology, and the local and global impacts. At our institution, we have taken a broad look at ways of integrating cyber awareness and education across the curriculum to reach all levels of students, irrespective of their major. We have identified core cyber issues that are taught to all freshmen, developed awareness training that is regularly completed, provided opportunities for interested students to gain more cyber knowledge through a student club and summer program, and developed an in-depth educational program for technical students to graduate with an emphasis in cyber-warfare. This paper will describe our various cyber programs and future plans.
