Abstract

Almost every career encompasses some form of security and today’s students must be introduced to various aspects of security to be effective in their career and daily lives. South Carolina State University (SC State University) has an ongoing Target Infusion Proposal grant from National Science Foundation (NSF) to address the problem of the lack of awareness and participation in cyber security since 2019. The project vision is to create a successful model of institution wide reform for undergraduate cybersecurity education at SC State University using instruction, internships, and seminars. The student should be able to evaluate, make decisions, and take responsible actions in the context of cyber security. This project uses a multi-tier approach to increase capacity in cyber security education, training, and awareness in the undergraduate curriculum The objective of this poster presentation is to share our experiences with various project activities. The findings presented in this paper may be used by interested parties involved in STEM curriculum.
