COE Design Challenge Hackathon: Countering Emerging Threats to Critical Infrastructure
February 25, 2022 - February 27, 2022
Registration is now open for the first joint DHS Center of Excellence (COE) design challenge hackathon. CINA is partnering with the Center for Accelerating Operational Efficiency (CAOE) at Arizona State University who is leading this three-day virtual event. During the event students will work in teams to solve real-life problem scenarios related to infrastructure risks and emerging threats. Participants will receive mentoring assistance available from critical infrastructure experts representing academia, industry, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
CINA seeks to sponsor innovative students with an interest in solving homeland security challenges from our COE partner universities. Mason students and CINA MSI partner universities will collaborate with teams from: Arizona State University (CAOE), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (CIRI), Stevens Institute of Technology (MSC) and University of Nebraska at Omaha (NCITE) are invited to participate.
The goal of the design challenge hackathon is to support the educational mission of the COEs, exposing more students to real-world homeland security issues in an effort to increase interest in pursuing careers at DHS and across the homeland security enterprise.
