VCU Engineering community members are making headlines. Leaders of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Department of Computer Science were featured in a front-page story about cybersecurity in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Erdem Topsakal, Ph.D., serves on the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative’s executive committee.
The opportunity is huge for Topsakal and his colleagues at VCU, which has already established a cybersecurity center under the direction of Milos Manic, a computer science professor. It is preparing to create the VCU Center for Analytics and Smart Technologies under the direction of Sherif Abdelwahed, a professor of electrical and computer engineering.
