NSF grant to produce collaborative course on mobile computing security

Dr. Kai Qian, professor of computer science and software engineering, has received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a collaborative project with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Tuskegee University.


The project, “Capacity building in mobile security through curriculum and faculty development, “has investigators developing a course on mobile security, including teaching materials, hands-on labs and learning exercises. The security of mobile computing is vital to the growing army of mobile device users, yet educational materials and curricula focusing on mobile security are still sparse.


The NSF has awarded a total of $210,000 to the project, $80,000 of which will go to SPSU.
