Collaboration Opportunities

Cybersecurity is part of everything we do, and collaboration is important in moving this field forward. There are many areas on campus that work with cybersecurity. You can find some of them here.

Information Security

CyberSecurity Club

The Wright State University Cybersecurity Club is dedicated to teaching, learning, sharing, and researching information and methods to protect and secure data, systems, and networks. We are a group of people who share a passion for software and hardware security. This club is mainly aimed at computer science and engineering majors, but anyone interested is welcomed to join.

Assured Digital Microelectronics Education & Training Ecosystem (ADMETE)

Leading a team of six Ohio academic institutions, Wright State University won an Air Force contract titled Assured Digital Microelectronics Education & Training Ecosystem (ADMETE). According to the Department of Defense, commercial state-of-the-art foundries for defense-related, application-specific integrated circuit development may not meet security and trusted computing requirements.

So the Air Force, under the direction of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, is working to ensure that microelectronics systems from commercial foundries are trusted, assured and protected. The effort applies to currently fielded microelectronics no longer in production, microelectronics in production, and next-generation cutting-edge microelectronics in development.

Meeting the demand requires a thriving workforce of digital design engineers with expertise in assured and trusted microelectronic systems. The Air Force says current academic programs across the country are not meeting this need.

To populate the pipeline, the Air Force plans to use innovative means in outreach and recruitment and forge close partnerships between institutions of higher education and regional employers.
