(Sept. 22, 2017) -- Glenn Dietrich, UTSA professor of information systems and cyber security, received a $350,000 grant from the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) for cybersecurity educational programs.
The first program will teach cyber security and digital forensics courses to Wounded Warriors. The three-week courses will be taught in both San Antonio and Camp Pendleton in California.
“This program will provide a pathway to a high-paying career for these warriors,” said Dietrich. “This skill set is in high demand both in the military as well as government industry.”
Promoting research activities for UTSA students through the INSuRE Program is the second component of the grant. UTSA undergraduate and graduate students will work on research projects provided by technical directors at NSA and federal labs.
As part of an academic class, students will conduct literature reviews, develop software and review existing research. The goal is that the students’ final papers will be accepted and presented at academic conferences.
“UTSA students will learn how to conduct research and interface with leading cyber security experts as part of this program,” said Dietrich. “We hope to have up to 20 students participate in the program this year.”
UTSA is recognized as one of the top five young universities in the nation by Times Higher Education.
