Instead of simply reacting to cyberattacks after they happen, Mizzou Engineering researchers developed a new approach — cyber “defense using pretense.”
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Prasad Calyam is the principal investigator on the two-year, $500,000 NSF award titled, “CC* Integration: End-to-End Performance and Security Driven Federated Data-Intensive Workflow Management.”
In the last two years, the IAC has conducted energy assessments at 36 manufacturing plants, and based on the implementation data received from 24 plants, the economic impact of the energy savings on these companies will be about $6.8 million.
Industry Sponsored Consortia hold great potential to further MU Engineering’s research mission and help create opportunities for faculty and students to interact with industry research partners on significant problems facing the world.
Recent University of Missouri research sponsored by the National Science Foundation titled “A Networked Virtual Reality Platform for Immersive Online Social Learning of Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders” (NSF CNS-1647213) has been focused on understanding the benefits in the use of virtual reality to aid the special education of students with autism.
The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department had another busy summer, hosting its National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates: Undergraduate Research in Consumer Networking Technologies and Summers@Mizzou Hacker Trackers program.
This past spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors.
Posters covering a wide array research topics and more filled a large room near the College’s library in the late afternoon, followed by four brief TED-style talks on subjects related to each of Mizzou Engineering’s four Pillars of Pursuit.
The highlight of the week for the Mizzou contingent was finishing second in the Student Cyber Challenge, coming in just slightly behind the University of Alabama team. The team earned high marks for their project, “Compartmentalized and Extensible Security Framework for Securing Pre-Existing Systems.”
