Western Washington University’s Poulsbo Location Will Be Home to First Cyber Range in Washington State
Computer Information System Security (CISS) students from all over Washington state will soon be able to practice cyber security exercises and test cyber range technologies in a controlled virtual environment when Western Washington University’s Poulsbo location opens the state’s first ever cyber range this fall.
As part of her research focus on Human-Centered Technology, Western Washington University Assistant Professor of Computer Science Moushumi Sharmin and her students have completed a prototype design for “MyQuitPal,” a smartphone-based smoking-cessation system that integrates technology similar to that in a Fitbit to help track user’s data and assist them in quitting smoking.
Also Will Develop New Program Offering Computer Science Teaching Certification
Western Washington University has been awarded $1.6 million in funding to expand capacity for students seeking computer science degrees as well as develop a new program offering computer science teaching certification.
