- Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
- Plan and execute a cyber penetration test, and utilize various vulnerability vectors that can be used to achieve an attacker?s goals.
- Integrate and apply the techniques and methodologies that are available for preventing, detecting, and countering cyber attacks; also discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these techniques and methodologies, and when each should be used.
- Student Outcomes
In the parentheses for each Student Outcome:
"P" for primary indicates the outcome is a major focus of the entire course.
“M” for moderate indicates the outcome is the focus of at least one component of the course, but not majority of course material.
“LN” for “little to none” indicates that the course does not contribute significantly to this outcome.
- ( P ) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- ( M ) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- ( LN ) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- ( M ) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- ( LN ) An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- ( M ) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- ( M ) An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
