These activities, which focus on information assurance and leadership/management, are designed to develop skills and assist professionals in achieving relevant certifications for the advancement of their careers.

Applied Innovation Research

Faculty and advanced students will engage in practical research projects to demonstrate technology capabilities in government and business environments.

A newsletter or journal disseminating these best practices in technology innovation and leadership will be published quarterly.
