Southern Methodist University (SMU) and Raytheon have joined in a strategic cyber research partnership based on the company’s efforts to collaborate with Darwin Deason Institute for Cyber Security in SMU’s Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering. Together they will work on research projects in cybersecurity. Education initiatives as well as opportunities for SMU students to intern at Raytheon will be offered.
SMU is not the only one educating cyber defense to students that will have a massive effect in the future of the cyber world. The Naval Academy received a donation from Leidos in support for its Fall cybersecurity studies and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) also continued with its contract under the Department of Defense (DoD) to develop technologies and practices through its own research and to apply technologies developed by outside organizations to solve engineering and cybersecurity challenges in fields including aerospace, transportation, banking and finance, energy, robotics, and industrial automation.
