2 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 BRIEF LISTING OF PROGRAM This document presents a summary of a proposed new master s program in Infrastructure Protection and International Security to be given jointly by the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carleton University. Initially the degree will be non-thesis. The Master s program leads to the degree Master of Infrastructure Protection and International Security (MIPIS). 1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM: The objective of this proposed program is to provide graduate students in both engineering and international affairs with a shared, professionally oriented degree focussed on Critical Infrastructure protection and policy. From the perspective of this program, Critical National Infrastructure encompasses the sectors involved in civil aviation, cyber-systems, energy, transport, telecommunications, and water supply. The Master s program is designed to provide graduate students with an interdisciplinary knowledge of engineering and security issues pertaining to Critical National Infrastructure. Particular attention will be paid to the threats, from terrorism and natural disasters, vulnerabilities, risks, and policy responses -- national and international -- relating to the security of Critical National Infrastructure. The objectives are achieved by giving Engineering students enhanced skills and knowledge about infrastructure security along with insights into threat assessments and policy options, while students from International Affairs will acquire familiarity with threat and policy analysis coupled with a deepened awareness of related engineering issues and solutions. The learning outcome will be engineers and policy managers better able to understand each others disciplines and better equipped to work together in key roles for the protection of Critical National Infrastructure. 1.3 MET HOD USED FOR SELF-STUDY The idea of a Master's degree in Infrastructure Protection and International Security had its origins in a professional workshop on North American Critical Energy Infrastructure Protection and Policy held at the University of Texas in Dallas at the end of January, 2006, sponsored jointly by the University of Texas (in Dallas) CyberSecurity and Emergency Preparedness Institute and Carleton's Canadian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies. The discussions and meetings of the workshop gave evidence of a real need to establish a joint program where students from the engineering profession and students from the policy and security studies domains could learn matters of shared interest. Subsequently, faculty members from Carleton's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Norman Paterson School of International Affairs who participated in this Workshop came to the conclusion that there exists an urgent requirement to provide interdisciplinary graduate training for students of engineering 2

3 and security studies to equip them to manage the protection of Critical National Infrastructure. No such program exists presently in Canada or the United States. It was therefore felt that Carleton University could offer distinct locational and institutional advantages for the creation of a new, innovative graduate program designed to provide interdisciplinary Master's level training in engineering and international security focussing on Critical Infrastructure Protection. Following the Dallas workshop, further discussions took place at meetings between the Carleton Department of Civil Engineering and Norman Paterson School of International Affairs on the structure and composition of a Master's degree program in Infrastructure Protection and International Security. Carleton senior management was apprised of this initiative, and gave it full support and encouragement. This initiative was discussed further with government and private sector representatives at a major international conference on "Critical Energy Infrastructure Protection: Assessing Threats, Vulnerabilities, and Responses," which was hosted by the Canadian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies (CCISS) in Ottawa at the end of March, Over the following months, a program design committee composed of core faculty from the Department of Civil Engineering and Norman Paterson School of International Affairs met regularly to draft a detailed proposal for the Master's degree in Infrastructure Protection and International Security. This proposal was put forward and approved by the University President s Committee in August, At the request of the University Academic and Research Committee (ARC), the program design committee proceeded to consult and present the submission to the OCGS. 1.4 FIELDS IN THE PROGRAM The degree designation is Master of Infrastructure Protection and International Security (M.I.P.I.S.). There are no fields. 1.5 REVIEW CONCERNS EXPRESSED IN THE PREVIOUS APPRAISAL AND ACTIONS TAKEN None. This is a new program proposal. 1.6 SPECIAL MATT ERS AND INNOVAT IVE FEATURES The Joint Master s Program in Infrastructure Protection and International Security will provide specialized interdisciplinary training in the important and critical field of infrastructure security and policy. This is the first such degree of its kind in North America. A key aspect of the program is to bridge the gap between policy managers and engineers. Terrorist attacks and natural disasters have caused serious damage to the infrastructures in many countries around the globe. These tragic events inflicted significant losses both in terms of lives and properties. Managers of Canada's Critical National Infrastructure are responsible for the protection and safety of the most vital assemblage of societal assets in the country, upon which the public, industry, agriculture and governments depend for their well-being, smooth operations and quality of life. It is the managers of these Critical National Infrastructure assets, including 3

4 those with engineering and policy backgrounds, who are the targets of the proposed MIPIS program. The MIPIS program is designed to equip these high profile managers and policy-makers responsible for our most valuable national assets with the knowledge and skills to assess and respond effectively and efficiently to threats that may jeopardize the security and safety of these important infrastructure systems. It will have specific appeal precisely to top echelon managers and policy-makers running the leading edge infrastructure sectors. Market: The new program is expected to attract managers with engineering and policy backgrounds from both the public and private sectors with the responsibility of protecting and maintaining the safety and security of Canadian Infrastructure. These students will come from different governmental organizations, departments and research laboratories. In addition, managers and policy-makers dealing with private sectors such as Canadian airports, power plants, major transportation facilities and energy assets will be interested to update their knowledge and expertise by joining the new program. It is expected that most of the students will have an engineering or science background either in their formal academic training or in their work experience. Such students have in the past been successful in completing the master's program in the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. In the past, students without strong engineering backgrounds have also been accommodated by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in their courses, making these courses accessible to students with more general backgrounds while retaining the core engineering requirements. In general, potential students wishing to apply to the MIPIS program must have successfully completed at least 1.0 credits in microeconomics or engineering economics, and to demonstrate some capacity in basic mathematics as explained on page 17 under Admission Requirements. Students who have not completed either senior secondary school mathematics or introductory microeconomics at the time of their application will have their admission into the program made conditional upon successful completion of ECOR 3800 (Engineering Economics) and MATH 0005 (Pre-calculus: Functions and Graphs) or their equivalent to ensure that they have the requisite background to complete the program successfully. These measures will ensure that all students admitted to the program will, upon successful completion of any conditions placed on admission, possess the remaining prerequisites to take and successfully complete any course in the program. While the program is intended to serve an important general role by providing analytical skills to all those involved in this growing area of critical importance, by its nature it will attract uniquely qualified students who have a degree of familiarity and capability with both engineering and security policy. Courses will be selected from a sub-set of courses currently offered at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, and from the new courses introduced to address the interrelated aspects of engineering and policy with respect to infrastructure protection. 4

5 2 THE FACULTY 2.1 LIST OF FACULTY BY FIELD Four full-time Category 3 faculty members, and one Professor Emeritus who are currently in place will lead this program. Two additional term-positions to support this program will be added by the University provided the program is approved by OCGS. The university has also committed to converting these term positions to tenure-track positions if the enrolment projections are met. In addition, the University has also indicated that a third core faculty member will be hired after the program has started, if enrolment projections are met. These new faculty members will exclusively contribute to the new program, and will provide courses specific to the new program as well as related courses with wider appeal to non-program students. The areas of expertise that these faculty will provide include critical infrastructure protection policy, international terrorism, and infrastructure protection engineering. In addition to the core faculty members there are 10 cross-appointed or collateral faculty who will contribute to this program as detailed in Table 1. Category 1: (1 Member) tenured or tenure-track core faculty members whose graduate involvement is exclusively in the graduate program under review. One faculty member will be added in this category after the program has been in place for a few years. Category 3: (4 Members) tenured or tenure-track core faculty members who are involved in teaching and/or supervision in other graduate program(s) in addition to being a core member of the graduate program under review. Category 4: (2 Member) non-tenure track core faculty members who are involved in teaching and/or supervision in other graduate program(s) in addition to being a core member of the graduate program under review. Two members will join the University prior to the start date, provided the proposal is approved by OCGS. Category 5: (4 Members) other core faculty: this category may include emeritus professors with supervisory privileges and persons appointed from government laboratories or industry as adjunct professors. This includes adjunct professors. Category 6: (5 members) non-core faculty who participate in the teaching of graduate courses 5

These elements of the program are intended to provide a venue for the students to link both the security and engineering components of their program. This integrative essay or project will serve a similar function to its equivalent in the NPSIA-Faculty of Law (University of Ottawa) joint MA-LLB program, the INAF 5906 research essay which combines both social science and legal analysis. A thesis based Master s program is planned for the future. Graduate student funding at levels comparable to our other thesis programs will be offered once a thesis bases Master s program is introduced. The third new faculty member (Category 1) will be hired when thesis based degrees are introduced. Current core, and collateral faculty members have extensive supervisory experience in other programs. Graduate supervision during the last seven years is noted in the tables below. 8

(Teaching relief is provided for faculty members with significant administrative responsibilities.). Teaching load in International affairs varies depending on the research/administrative activities of the faculty member. 2.5 COMMITMENT OF FACULTY MEMBERS FROM OTHER GRADUATE PROGRAMS AND/OR FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS There are currently faculty from graduate programs in civil engineering, environmental engineering and international affairs leading this initiative. Contacts have been made with several professors in various departments and many have expressed an interest and their willingness to participate in the program. Details of the departments are given in section

15 3 PHYSICAL AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES 3.1 Library resources A statement from the library is attached in Appendix Laboratory facilities: The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department has a state-of-the-art structures laboratory with a strong floor and framing system to support full scale experiments in structures and geotechnique. This laboratory also includes a strong pit, overhead cranes, high capacity testing machines, hydraulic actuators, acquisition systems and shop facilities. In addition, the environmental laboratories can accommodate research equipment up to pilot scale and have the facilities for carrying out experiments in contaminant transport. A $10 million facility for fire research has recently been constructed that includes a 10-storey atrium, a 37m tunnel, and a 25X25m burn-hall. In addition, there is a fire laboratory on the university campus that contains a number of laboratory-scale, state -of-the-art research apparatuses. 3.3 Computer facilities Computer equipment in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering comprises a centralized UNIX environment based on SUN workstations, and a cluster of Microsoft Windows based PCs as well as many individually held research workstations and servers in a variety of configurations. In addition, all faculty and graduate students are provided access to the computing resources available at the University. These computer systems include up-to-date general purpose software in the fields of statistical analysis, mathematical and scientific computation, database management, word-processing, and specialised engineering software for advanced research. Carleton University is also part of the High Performance Computing Virtual Laboratory (HPCVL) consortium. HPCVL is dedicated to providing researchers with the secure High Performance Computing (HPC) resources they need to conduct innovative research in a broad spectrum of disciplines. The high performance computing facilities that HPCVL operates are distributed throughout Carleton University and other partner Universities. 3.4 Space Office space for any new faculty and desk and study space for students has been requested. No additional requirements are needed initially. Some space requirements to be provided by potential sponsors may materialize as the program matures. This would be in the form of a meeting/seminar area for all students in the program. We have specifically stated to the University that administering the program will initially be covered by existing resources. If the program grows, as we expect and hope it will, the University will then decide what that growth warrants as additional resources. 15

16 3.5 Financial support Students entering the program with excellent academic records will be eligible for University funding in the form of teaching assistantships and scholarships, which we anticipate will be allocated to the program in amounts commensurate with its size. Teaching Assistantship stipend is about $9000 per year (for 265 hours of work spread over two terms). The value of scholarships varied between about $2000 and $8000 per year in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering during the 2005/06 academic year. In addition, students may be eligible for research assistantship funds depending on the research grants of the faculty associated with the program. Financial support for funded Master's students will be in the range of $15,000-$18,000 per year. Most students, however, are expected to be self supported or supported by their employers. In addition to these regular awards, currently there are approximately 40 internal and external scholarships available to deserving graduate students. A list of internal and external scholarships available for graduate students is made available at the University website. 4 PROGRAM REGULATIONS AND COURSES 4.1 THE INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE EDUCAT IONAL EXPERIENCE OF THE STUDENT The international affairs students will have a main interest in and potential expertise in, policy planning and management and on matters of security. The engineering students will have a main interest in how the problems are solved from a technological perspective. This program provides very specialized task specific training which blends the social science and engineering sides. The program is structured to promote this interaction both in the range of courses required in the program and the content of the classes themselves. For example, some of the technical courses taught by engineers will have components accessible to social science students. Similarly the social science based courses will accommodate the training of engineering students by permitting them to focus elements of their course work on more technical engineering-related topics. We will be looking at a balance of course availability and course content carefully. 16

17 4.1.1 Governance The administration of the program will be overseen by a Program Committee (the Committee on Infrastructure Protection and International Security - CIPIS). This Committee will be chaired jointly by the Director of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs or his or her designate and the Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering or his or her designate. The task of chairing committee may be delegated at the discretion of the Director and Chair to either the Associate Director (Graduate Affairs) of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs or the Associate chair (Graduate) of the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Membership of the Committee will be those faculty listed in Categories 1-4 and 6 in this volume of the Brief. This Committee will be responsible for the general direction and development of the Program, including program and curriculum development. It will be the body that forwards proposals for program and curriculum changes to the Programs and Planning Committee of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. The Committee may delegate detailed work on program and curriculum development to a sub-committee. Decisions on course offerings, teaching assignments and related matters for each academic year will rest, jointly, with the Director of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs and the Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. However, it will be open to the Program Committee to render advice on these matters to the Director and the Chair. A second committee, the Management and Admissions Committee, will work within the general guidelines set by CIPIS, and will have responsibility for overseeing matters related to the day-to-day management of the program. The Committee will be chaired jointly by the Director of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs or his or her designate and the Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering or his or her designate. Membership of the Committee will be two faculty each from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering listed in Categories 1-4 and 6 in this volume of the Brief and appointed, respectively, by the Director of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs and the Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This Committee will also be responsible for reviewing applications to the Program and making recommendations on admissions and funding to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. 17

18 4.2 PROGRAM REGULATIONS The proposed graduate program will be subject to the general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at Carleton University. In addition, the following specific program regulations are to be listed Admission Requirements The minimum requirement for admission into the master's program is a B.A. (Honours) degree in a foundation discipline where students have acquired a high level of proficiency in statistics and mathematics such as economics, commerce, psychology, political science, sociology, geography, the physical sciences, or a Bachelor s degree in engineering. Students will normally be expected to have high honours standing to be considered for admission into the program. In conformity with the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, applicants whose first language or language instruction for their first degree is not English must be tested for proficiency in English. Applicants in this situation must submit a CAEL Assessment score of a minimum of 70 or a TOEFL score of 250 (computer-based). As mentioned on page 4, students admitted to the MIPIS program must have successfully completed at least 1.0 credits in macro- and microeconomics or engineering and to demonstrate proficiency in mathematics. Students who have not completed either senior secondary school mathematics or introductory economics at the time of their application will have their admission into the program made conditional upon successful completion of ECOR 3800 (Engineering Economics) and MATH 0005 (Precalculus: Functions and Graphs) or their equivalent. Applications are to be made to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering or the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. Admission decisions are made by the Management and Admissions Committee made up of faculty members from both of these units. All applications received by January 31 will be considered for financial support. Applications received after this date may be accepted, but without financial support. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that their completed application and all supporting documents are received by the deadline Program Requirements The MIPIS program requires completion of 5.0 credits. The program offers three different program options: course work only, research project or research essay. The requirements can be satisfied by 5.0 course work credits only, or by 4.0 credits of coursework and a 1.0 credit research project or by 4.0 credit coursework and a 1.0 credit research essay. The details of the program options are: 18

19 All program options require: 2.0 credits from IPIS 5101 Critical Infrastructure Protection: Issues and Strategies (0.5 credit) IPIS 5102 Introduction to Infrastructure Management (CIVE 5809)(0.5 credit) IPIS 5103 Infrastructure Engineering Principles (0.5 credit) IPIS 5104 Terrorism & International Security (INAF 5244) (0.5 credit) 1.0 credit selected from IPIS 5301 Disarmament, Proliferation & Arms Control (INAF 5201) (0.5 credit) IPIS5302 International Security after the Cold War (INAF 5202) (0.5 credit) IPIS5303 Intelligence Statecraft & International Affairs (INAF 5204) (0.5 credit) IPIS5304 Intelligence & National Security: Policies and Operations (INAF 5224) (0.5 credit) IPIS5305 National Security Policy & Law (INAF 5234) (0.5 credit) 1.0 credit selected from: IPIS 5501 Transportation & Aviation Security (0.5 credit) IPIS 5502 Infrastructure Assets Management (0.5 credit) (CIVE 5706) IPIS 5503 People in Fires (CIVE 5611) (0.5 credit) IPIS 5504 Fundamentals of Fire Safety (CIVE 5609) (0.5 credit) IPIS 5505 Geohazards (0.5 credit) (CIVE 5505) IPIS 5506 Public Health (0.5 credit) IPIS 5507 Blast-load Effects on Structures (0.5 credit) (CIVE 5707) Remaining 1.0 credit from: Coursework Option: (a) graduate courses listed above, or (b) with the permission of the committee, graduate courses offered at the Faculty of Engineering and Design, or the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. Research Project Option: IPIS 5907 [1.0 credit] Infrastructure Engineering Project Research Essay Option: IPIS 5908: [1.0 credit] Research Essay Academic Standing A grade of B- or better must be obtained in each course counted towards the Master's degree. Exceptions to this rule are not permitted. 19

20 Full time Continuation Students will be required to withdraw from the program if their weighted grade point average falls below 7.0 (B-) after two terms of full time study (or equivalent), or if they receive a grade of less than B- in any two courses they have registered in. Part time continuation Students will be required to withdraw from the program if their weighted grade point average falls below 7.0 (B-) after completing 2.0 credits, or if they receive a grade of less than B- in any two courses they have registered in. 4.3 PART-TIME STUDIES We expect a significant number of part time students as noted earlier since the program suggests a market that will include existing government and private sector employees. These employees will split between leave of absence from employer (full time) and part time, and aside from timing, the program is intended to provide a similar educational experience for both categories of student. 4.4 TOTAL GRADUATE COURSES LISTED AND LEVEL All courses taken for credit must be graduate courses at the 5000-level or above. In addition to those listed as compulsory for all students in the program (IPIS 510x), electives may be selected from the following preliminary list of courses.
