E&C-ENG 371 Introduction to Security Engineering

This novel course presents an introduction to the topic of security engineering by building on  analytical and experimental computer engineering techniques, and then applying them to security problems.  Security is playing an increasing role in computer engineering and society at large. Security engineering crosses several disciplines of computer engineering including hardware, software, cryptography, experimental methods as well as broader topics such as management, economics, risk analysis, policy and human factors. A junior-level course in security engineering provides early exposure to these topics, giving an example of the value and techniques of multi-disciplinary study. It also provides an exciting and motivating topic for students of all backgrounds with a very compelling career path. The Honors section 371H focuses on Machine Learning security issues.
