Akhtar Lodgher, Ph.D., is a professor of computing and cybersecurity. He is currently working in the area of cybersecurity education and has acquired NSA and NSF grants for creating modules for infusing cybersecurity concepts into all core subjects of computer science education. He has over 25 years of software development experience in a wide set of application areas such as transactional systems, software engineering, and mobile applications. In the classroom, he challenges and guides students to build complete software solutions using current software methodologies. For the last 15 years, Lodgher has worked diligently in increasing the number of students from under-represented groups, including women, who enroll as undergraduates in computer science and has received NSF grants to nurture and foster innovation in undergraduate students.
The department of Computer Science at Texas A&M University-San Antonio (A&M- SA) was a recipient of a grant funded by National Security Agency (NSA), to build independent, loosely coupled learning modules on various cybersecurity concepts. Other universities have also been a part of this program and several hundred publicly available modules have been developed. Also, […]
