Howard University Given $1 Million Grant for Cybersecurity Research

A three-year $1 million grant was awarded Monday to Howard University’s Cybersecurity Center Director Danda B. Rawat for the “Security Engineering for Resilient Mobile Cyber-Physical Systems” research project, according to the National Science Foundation.

The project aims to “design, develop and evaluate the cyber-defense solutions for resilient cyber-physical systems using a federated framework.”

“Part of this research is to encourage the development of security from the onset, not at the tail end of it,” Moses Garuba, associate dean at Howard, said to the Washington Post. “The systems have to be developed, designed with security in mind and security incorporated.”

The NSF hopes for projects like these to increase “the production of doctoral students, especially those underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

“I am delighted to see our faculty vigorously transform our college, while engaging our students in conquering the daunting technological challenges of our time,” Howard’s dean of the College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer Sciences Achille Messac said in a statement. “Dr. Rawat and Dr. Garuba are exemplary change agents in our college, and I am proud of them.”
