The Study Plan in Cyber Physical Security Engineering leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE-CPSE), integrates the tenets of Electrical Engineering and Management Information Systems to provide an interdisciplinary professional career in this burgeoning area.  The BSE-CPSE program offers a relevant, stimulating, and effective course of undergraduate study to produce digital hardware, embedded systems, and data communication that are resilient to cyber-physical system intrusion to meet the needs of the new century.

The BSE-CPSE program is intended to train undergraduate Engineering students in the principles and techniques to safeguard cyber-physical systems, such as electrical power generation and distribution, transportation and process control of critical industries, from intrusion and harm. The utilization of embedded sensors, processor hardware and networked computers with intelligent machines and the Internet-of-Things require a focused approach for cyber-physical security.

The BSE-CPSE program emphasizes all aspects of digital hardware, embedded systems, data communication, processor architectures, computer programming and algorithm development. Professional employment includes the analysis, design and co-development of hardware and software systems for diverse industries and applications.  The intent of the BSE-CPSE program is to provide reliable and trustworthy embedded computer systems which will have a profound impact on the global society.

Courses in the BSE-CPSE Study Plan include:

ECE2105 Introduction to Cyber Physical Security
ECE4526 Intrusion Detection
ECE4528 Cryptography
ECE4532 Data and Computer Communications
ECE4574 CISCO Certificate Preparation

The BSE-CPSE program includes requisite and one ECE or CIS approved technical elective, which provides flexibility in the course of study and as preparation for your professional employment and graduate study. The BSE-CSS program requires two requisite courses in business and management.
