3 Modules Prepare Students for Global Logistics Demands Logisticians work with people they do not know while separated by distance, language, culture, and time zones. Security requirements in the wake of the Iraq War and terrorist attacks place even more complex demands on logisticians. The online modules developed by the Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) for Secure Logistics project cover these realities and the new technologies that move materials through global supply chains. The ATE project continues a partnership between the UNC- Chapel Hill and Lenoir Community College that began with a previous National Science Foundation grant. Lenoir faculty members supply content for the modules that teachers anywhere may access online for minicourses or additions to existing curricula. Lenoir has recently completed articulation agreements with East Carolina University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for its Global Logistics Technology program. The college s completely online version of courses for the Global Logistics Technology certificates and degrees attracts students from Alaska, Japan, Australia, Vietnam, and Iraq. The CLE project partners serve as advisors for new industry and degree programs in Nebraska, Oklahoma, and North Carolina. The project also involves collaborating with international educational institutions. The Monterrey Institute of Technology in Monterrey, Mexico, is translating the CLE modules into Spanish. Students and faculty in Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, participate in a simulation of global supply chain activities with U.S. students. I feel like I have gained valuable knowledge of the total logistics concept. Since starting the program, I have taken on the added responsibility of handling my company s export [and] import business. A collaborative game, called ROAM for Radio Frequency Identification Online Aviation Module, allows students to simulate the management of aviation parts using new radio frequency technologies.

4 Computer Security and Data Assurance Associate Degree Program Norwalk Community College (NCC) Norwalk, CT The program greatly enhances NCC s ability to achieve a level of certification and recognition by NSA [National Security Agency] and other government agencies. John R. Cordani, Senior Computer Scientist Computer Science Corporation Manassas, VA ATE Project Adds Cyber Security to All NCC Computer Science Courses In the process of developing its computer security and data assurance associate degree program, Norwalk Community College (NCC) used industry advice to infuse security issues into every computer science course at the college. This ATE project outcome continues to have a profound effect on how faculty members teach computer science at NCC. Each course now includes at least one module detailing how to design more secure software. In many courses, security concerns are embedded from start to finish. NCC s curriculum both fits industry s needs and aligns with universities curricula. Consequently, graduates of NCC s program are ready to enter the workforce or to transfer to baccalaureate programs with industry-acknowledged expertise. Most students exit the program as Cisco Certified Network Associates. The new curriculum also prepares students to take the Cisco PIX Firewall specialist exam. The depth and breadth of faculty knowledge of computer security issues is greater thanks to the grant s support of faculty participation in industry externships and conferences. Faculty members use their knowledge not only to teach in their classrooms but also to reach out into the community. For instance, the college s Cyber Security Challenges attract attention to the high school computer science programs that articulate to NCC and involve computer security industry personnel in the student competition. NCC students collaborate on a computer security project. 78

5 Tacoma Community College Fills Niche for Logistics, Transportation Workers More than $40 billion worth of goods travel through the ports of Puget Sound each year, leading to tens of thousands of direct and indirect jobs. Tacoma Community College, which is near the Port of Tacoma, is using its ATE grant to develop an effective and relevant logistics program for people who work or want to work at the ports. The Creation of Instructional Program in Secure Logistics project fills a niche in the Puget Sound region. In the region, there is high demand for people capable of dealing with the large volume of goods that travel from manufacturers to consumers and of checking the security of those goods. The project provides instruction not otherwise available in the region both to current workers who want to learn more to advance in their careers and to those competing for entry-level positions. The college works closely with industry and its professional technical advisory committee to structure its certificate and degree programs in secure logistics, transportation, and supply chain management so they align with workplace competencies. With the grant s support, the college offers seven courses that are partially or fully available online. Classroom sessions are scheduled for the late afternoon or evening to accommodate working students, particularly those who work on the road. This gives students the maximum opportunity to complete the program. The new courses include the following: Introduction to Logistics Transportation and Distribution Warehousing and Inventory Management International Logistics Importing and Exporting Logistics Technology Supply Chain Management The secure logistics program at TCC prepares technicians to do security checks and otherwise manage the movement of goods from manufacturers to consumers via the Port of Tacoma. Creation of Instructional Program in Secure Logistics Project Tacoma Community College (TCC) Tacoma, WA areasofstudy/logistics.aspx We have had a lot of interest within our own company already. We also have a tuition reimbursement program that [employees] are able to take advantage of. It is exciting. Kim Betts, Human Resource Administrative Supervisor Gordon Trucking, Inc. Pacific, WA 79

6 Del Mar College Project Educates Underserved, Disavantaged Populations for Emerging Technology Fields Del Mar College s Cyber Security and Computer Forensics project educates technicians in cyber security, computer forensics, and data recovery. The project provides underserved and disadvantaged populations in South Texas with the courses they need to gain employment in these emerging information technology fields. A Del Mar College student configures file system accesss controls during a lab exercise. Cyber Security and Computer Forensics Del Mar College Corpus Christi, TX The new courses, developed with ATE grant support, provide students with a strong background in networking fundamentals and extensive learning activities using industry-standard equipment and software. For instance, the digital media curriculum focuses on the use of specialized software and practices associated with the discovery, analysis, and documentation utilized in forensic investigations. Students learn how to retrieve data stored in various formats from computers, cell phones, and other digital devices. Students learn about the chain of custody for digital evidence, encryption, and data access controls. The systems security curriculum provides students with the skills to design and create secure systems, as well as troubleshoot system vulnerabilities. The curriculum also integrates business policies and procedures with technical skills. Students receive holistic performance evaluations in a capstone course and a competitive event. Del Mar College prepared me in every aspect for immediate success in my career. Sylvia Long, Contact Center Support Agent Whataburger Restaurants Corpus Christi, TX Information Systems Security Graduate Del Mar College Corpus Christi, TX The Cyber Security and Forensics project disseminates its curriculum modules statewide. As a result of their work on this ATE grant, Del Mar faculty members are assisting in the development of security, wireless, and digital forensics curricula for the state of Texas. The project prompted Del Mar College to build a dedicated computer security laboratory with an air-gapped or isolated network, to develop a security management policy, to host computer forensics competitions, and to reestablish a computer science club that offers periodic public programs on computer security and virus detection. Two faculty members also discuss cyber security issues on weekly broadcasts; one instructor appears on a television program and the other has a radio show. 80

7 Certificate Program Informs Computer Security Personnel to Prevent Cyber System Attacks The Information Systems Security (ISS) certificate program provides students with the core skills they need to take on information security leadership roles at the organizations and companies that employ them. Erie Community College (ECC) developed the four-course certificate program and offers workshops for high school educators with ATE grant support. Its partner on the project is the Center of Excellence in Information Systems Assurance Research and Education at the State University of New York Buffalo (SUNY-Buffalo). The ISS courses teach students to identify cyber security risks and other threats to computer systems. Students develop working knowledge of the various laws governing computer security and ways to comply. An ECC student completes an intrusion detection exercise in a college laboratory dedicated to cyber security instruction. Laboratory sessions in a dedicated laboratory at ECC emphasize real-world systems, tools, and techniques. Students are encouraged to get inside hackers minds to identify system vulnerabilities. Laboratory exercises cover network reconnaissance, intrusion detection, firewall configurations, access control, and password cracking. The workshops and roundtables convened jointly by ECC and SUNY-Buffalo bring together key stakeholders in Western New York to consider an array of computer security issues in academic and business environments. Summer workshops for high school teachers offer insights on how to prepare students for careers in this high-demand field. Information Systems Security (ISS) Curriculum Development Erie Community College (ECC) Williamsville, NY Student interns that step up to the internship already with IT security knowledge are a godsend. This is an area of great need and we are thankful for the assistance. Mike Mineo, AVP Information Technology Security Roswell Park Cancer Institute Buffalo, NY The ISS program has provided me with valuable knowledge and job skills in the information security arena. I have enjoyed the well-developed balance between theory and technical practice in the laboratory. Andrew Girling, Student Erie Community College Williamsville, NY 81

8 Investigative Sciences and Law Enforcement Technologies (ISLET) Century College White Bear Lake, MN ISLET Strengthens Homeland Security Efforts The Investigative Sciences and Law Enforcement Technologies (ISLET) project strengthens the science and technology aspects of Century College s law enforcement programs to improve the detection, defense, and diagnosis of homeland security threats. ISLET has addressed national law enforcement challenges by Developing three new associate degree programs. Developing faculty to teach the new curriculum. Enhancing the science and technology aspects of existing curriculum modules. Adding 10 new courses that integrate theoretical and technical knowledge for law enforcement professionals. Offering three of the new courses online. Creating Project Shield, a service learning experience focusing on interoperability among first responder agencies. Establishing partnerships with government, industry, and education to align curriculum with law enforcement s needs. Encouraging regional and national dialog for greater collaboration. Building articulation agreements between secondary schools, community colleges, and four-year institutions. Initiating a statewide geospatial initiative that uses geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems, and remote sensing. Offering statewide workshops on GIS and criminal investigation. As a result of ISLET activities, Century College is now a Regional Center for Criminal Justice, Investigation, Interoperability, and Intelligence with the National Partnership for Careers in Law, Public Safety, Corrections, Fire, and Security. This center at the public community and technical college influences law enforcement education in three states. I transferred [from a private university] to take ISLET courses. I m going for the computer forensic courses certificate also.

9 Terrorist Agent Control Technology Program Uses All Hazards Approach Terrorism response activities are not limited to one or two occupations. Technicians working in science, industry, agriculture, environmental management, public service, and law enforcement must respond to terrorist threats. Because these same people also deal with accidental releases of hazardous agents, Kirkwood Community College employs an all hazards approach for the Terrorist Agent Control Technology (TACT) program. Kirkwood has been a national leader in environmental safety and security education for 30 years. TACT s online credit courses provide a basic scientific understanding of the biological and chemical agents that terrorists use. The courses also introduce the instrumentation and techniques necessary to sample and detect hazardous agents. These courses, as part of the TACT certification program, have been adapted for continuing opportunities through the American Board of Industrial Hygienists and the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science, which grants Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education or PACE credits. By the fall of 2007, 80 students had completed TACT credit courses offered through Kirkwood Community College, Monroe Community College (NY), the National Labor College (MD), and Westmoreland Community College (PA). The Pennsylvania National Guard and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center are adapting TACT s format and materials for a community education project. The TACT initiative also instigated a close working relationship between Kirkwood Community College, the University of Iowa Hygienic Laboratory, and the Iowa Learning Resource Network. Hazardous materials teams throughout Iowa now use educational materials that the three organizations created together. Students master response skills in controlled practice settings and on the job after completing online course work. Terrorist Agent Control Technology (TACT) Kirkwood Community College Cedar Rapids, IA The wealth of up-to-date information provided within this course, coupled with hot-links to the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], virtual exercises, and self-quizzes provides the right balance of information and learning.
