Andrew Fallin is working with Air Force ROTC cadets as they navigate their CySER program. CySER is an inter-institution program working to help students both inside and out of computer science learn about cyber-security. Cadets here at MSU participate in a baseline cyber-security class their first semester while also planning out their senior capstone projects. Each capstone project must contain a cyber component to it though it need not be the focus.
Over the summer following their senior year they will participate in a two week summer workshop to learn more about cyber-security before they attend their summer internship. In addition to all of this. Andrew teaches and leads discussions over the course of the fall cyber class as well as mentors the cadets as they navigate their capstone’s cyber component.
