UH recieves $1.5M grant for cybersecurity
UH has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The CyberCorps grant is meant to help train students in methods of national security and get students interested in cybersecurity training and research.
UH computer science intends to use the grant to “allow for the creation of more courses toward developing a new degree track specifically to prepare cybersecurity professionals for the workforce,” according to a UH press release. Once that is put in place, the new track on security will be introduced to the computer science masters program. After that, a doctorate track will be added, followed by a bachelors track.
