Center of Cyber Security

The mission of the Center of Cyber Security is to advance interdisciplinary collaborative research and technology solutions in the field of cyber security. The mission will be achieved by leveraging the partnerships and resources of the university, and building upon the momentum that has been launched in research, curriculum and outreach in cyber security. In addition, the Center will position Oakland University to seek further funding through external funding resources.
Center of Cyber Security
Information

The purpose of the Oakland University Center of Cyber Security (The Center) is to promote the interdisciplinary collaborative research in the area of cyber security, leveraging the partnerships and resources of the university. The establishment of the Center builds upon the momentum that has been launched in research; curriculum (Master of Science in Cyber Security, SECS, Master of Science in Information Technology Management, SBA) and outreach (OU INC MedHealth Cyber Security Program and Macomb INC Cyber Security Range for Defense and Advanced Manufacturing).  As such, the Center aligns strongly with the University’s new strategic plan and goals. The Center will have a strong research and scholarly direction, provide opportunities for student research and internships, and with the integration of the incubators and their business connections, will be a strong nexus in engaging the community.  Community partners have already expressed the need for solutions, training, and talent with a desire to form partnerships to meet these needs.  The Center will generate considerable synergy among the University’s goals leading to greater success. The extent of possibilities is yet to be defined as it will grow as the partnerships and collaborations strengthen; however, the existing momentum and demonstrated demand exist.
