The Center for Computer and Communications Security (C3S) at CMU is working with historically black colleges and universities and Hispanic-serving institutions to create the next generation of Internet- security experts. Partners in the effort, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), include Howard University, Morgan State University and the University of Texas at El Paso.
This summer, the initiative began with a four-week program by Carnegie Mellon's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and its CERT Coordination Center, the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management (Heinz School), and the School of Computer Science.
Pradeep Khosla, the Philip and Marsha Dowd Professor of Engineering and Robotics and head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, is one of the participating Carnegie Mellon faculty members.
