University of Maryland HACS 498 Cybersecurity Group Problem Solving Entire Course
The Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students (ACES) program encourages its students to engage in team problem-solving activities in order to gain greater insight into a specific area within cybersecurity and to obtain an appreciation for the subtleties and difficulties associated with these activities in order to prepare students for graduate school and the workforce. Students engage in a semester-long problem-solving or development project under the mentorship of an industry specialist and with the guidance of university faculty. Through the exercise, the students will develop teamwork experience and professional communication skills in addition to the experience of the project itself. The project might be an evaluation, creation, testing, or analysis of some area of cybersecurity as needed by the mentor-sponsor. A contract of what will be accomplished is required must be agreed upon by the mentor, the student, and the ACES leadership before the project can begin.
