Howard University Awarded With $1M Grant For Cybersecurity Research

Howard University’s College of Engineering and Architecture is the recipient of a $1 million grant from The National Science Foundation’s HBCU Research Infrastructure for Science and Engineering (HBCU-RISE) that will fund a cyber security research project.

“Security Engineering for Resilient Mobile Cyber-Physical Systems” will innovate the cybersecurity field with tasks such as developing reproducible mobile cyber-physical system units, designing and evaluating a federated framework for incident detection and response systems and designing, evaluating and validating the proposed framework, according to the NSF’s official Award Abstract.

Howard University’s College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer Sciences Associate Dean Moses Garuba and Associate Professor Danda B. Rawat are the principal investigators of the project.

In a press release by Howard University, Dean Achille Messac, Ph.D., College of Engineering and Architecture said, “I am delighted to see our faculty vigorously transform our college while engaging our students in conquering the daunting technological challenges of our time. Dr. Rawat and Dr. Garuba are exemplary change agents in our college, and I am proud of them.”
