National Science Foundation Funds Development of First-of-Its-Kind Drone Cybersecurity Curriculum at Embry-Riddle

October 2, 2020

With the support of a $320,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University assistant professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Houbing Song will help develop a hands-on curriculum to educate students in the cybersecurity of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones.

"Embry-Riddle is the perfect place to develop these curriculum materials," Song said, citing the university's extensive UAV and cybersecurity facilities. "I expect this curriculum to be widely adopted by universities in the U.S. and around the world."

The curriculum also serves Embry-Riddle President P. Barry Butler's mission to expand aviation cybersecurity at the university, said Song.
