Theresa Mayer, Purdue University, Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships said, “Purdue’s world-class cybersecurity researchers and commitment to expanding resources in this important area will enable us to be a strong partner in the ongoing effort to anticipate and prevent cyber attacks. We look forward to expanding our long-standing relationship with Rolls-Royce and engaging with leading researchers at Carnegie Mellon to develop new techniques and strategies to combat critical cybersecurity concerns and advance the field in the process.”
Beginning in January, some Purdue University Global students pursuing graduate degrees in information technology and cybersecurity began working with Flying HIGH Inc. to gain experience while lending their topical knowledge to the nonprofit organization in Youngstown, Ohio.
Purdue University and MITRE are combining their expertise and capabilities to form a new public-private partnership focusing on key areas of national safety and security.
