The increasing advancement in Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 advantages inspire more connectivity of vital infrastructure to the cloud. Securing infrastructure digital and control systems is currently a crucial demand in a cyber-world characterized by continuous outrageous attacks. Preparing qualified students to satisfy the current and future work force requirements is deemed essential. One of the main challenges of cybersecurity domain is its interdisciplinary nature that involves scientist, engineers, technologists, and business teams. It is almost impossible in real life to mitigate threats and defend against attacks without assembling teams that include team members with skills in all the aforementioned disciplines. This paper aims at creating an interdisciplinary course between college of engineering, college of science, and collage of business for junior level students. The course objective is to bring students from the three disciplines in a multidisciplinary experience that aid students at replicating real life projects. Instructors from all three disciplines guide the students during the course work and supervise the project activities. The fifteen weeks course can adopt all types of cybersecurity systems and provide framework for students’ collaboration on a practical project. The framework consist of four modules divided between the three disciplines; the first module include the project scope, system integration, and team incorporation. The second module include the system engineering, cybersecurity design, and application development. The third module include the system cybersecurity algorithms, data collection, organization, and analytics. Finally, the last module include the system business planning, cybersecurity applications operations implementation, and maintenance. This paper adopt an IoT based project as a case study for applying the framework and show the use of the course model for developing the IoT project.
