Upcoming smart technologies such as Smart Cities, Internet of Things, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles digitize current
technologies and require cybersecurity-aware multi-disciplinary engineering experts to ensure the security of
such devices. As devices become smart and interconnected to provide improved services, they also become greater
targets of cyber-attacks. Ensuring proper operation of smart technologies requires well-trained, proactive engineers,
who are knowledgeable on core engineering principles, cybersecurity risks associated with their designs, and risks from
other interconnected disciplines. The goal of this collaborative project is to develop and adopt interdisciplinary
cybersecurity curriculum by fostering a holistic approach through collaboration across engineering disciplines.
By bringing scholars from different engineering disciplines, this project explores unique ways to engage students
in interdisciplinary cybersecurity-aware engineering education.
