Secure Embedded Systems Program Description
Morgan State University is proposing a new academic graduate degree program, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Secure Embedded Systems. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering proposes the Program in collaboration with the School of Business and Management (Information Sciences &amp; Systems) and the School of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (Computer Science).&nbsp; As we embed more functionality in smaller device footprints, there is an upsurge in the security concerns as well. To address the security concerns, we present the Ph.D. in Secure Embedded Systems. <br> <br>The Ph.D. program in Secure Embedded Systems targets highly motivated students. They have already obtained a bachelor&#39;s or master&#39;s degree and desire to pursue career opportunities in academia, commercial industry, defense, government laboratories, federal agencies, consulting, military, or research. <br>
