Spring 2016
 

Class: Control Systems Security CRN

Days: T from 04:30 pm to 07:00 pm

Instructor: James J Solderitsch

Course Description: Security risks of critical infrastructure systems such as electrical, pipelines, water, and transportation. Design and setup of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) systems. Security challenges and defense-in-depth methodology. Hands-on lab experiments.

Class: Systems Engineering Test & Measurement (ME 8010)

Days: W from 04:30 pm to 07:00 pm

Instructor: Stephen A. Mastro

Course Description: This course addresses the processes that allow engineers to verify that their ideas, designs, models, and completed and operating systems are meeting their requirements in an optimized way.  Critical to the Systems Engineering process, SE T&E requires careful and rigorous planning, execution, and data analysis to properly judge activities from basic idea generation, through design and modeling, to construction and operation of a system.  Through a discussion of first principles as well as examples and coursework in the application of proper T&E processes, students will  be able to:

  1. Articulate and describe the importance of Test and Evaluation in the field of engineering and within the Systems Engineering Process 
  2. Understand and articulate the role of modeling and simulation to Test and Evaluation.
  3. Describe the role of planning in Test and Evaluation, describe its importance, and demonstrate its use.
  4. Explain and analyze how organizational structure, business concepts, and other factors relate to effective System Integration and Test and Evaluation.

Class: Cryptography & Network Security (ECE 8476)

Days: Thursday from 04:30 pm to 07:00 pm

Instructor: Frank Ferrese

Course Description: Theory and practice of computer communications security, including cryptography, authentication, and secure electronic mail. Topics include secret and public key cryptography; message digests; password-based, address- based, and cryptographic authentication; privacy and authentication in email; PEM, PGP, and S/MIME. Use of various algorithms.
