Outside Experience

March 16, 2020

Summary

Students pursuing a degree in cybersecurity or computer science at Tennessee Tech University gain experience from their extracurriculars just as much as academics. Dr. Ambareen Siraj, professor/director of its Cybersecurity Education Research and Outreach Center (CEROC), discusses her approach to student education, her classes’ research projects, and how they reach out to teach others in the community.

“I think what has the most impact on the students is what they do outside of the classroom. I tell our kids that if you just take courses and don't do anything outside of courses in cybersecurity, then you're not learning anything.”
