Enhancing Information Security Education with Lab Experiments and Collaboration in a Minority Technology Institution

Xiang-dong LI


We present our experience on enhancing information security education with lab experiments and collaboration in a minority technical institution. We built an information security laboratory, which has supported security courses and several network courses for 10 years at New York City College of Technology (City Tech, CUNY). In addition, we have developed the collaboration with two national centers of Excellence in Information Assurance Education to enhance the student research capacity. The teaching method has been successfully implemented as a model for an experimentation environment providing hands-on experiences and research in topics related to information security.
