NSA, N.C. A&T Partnering for a Diverse Workforce
EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Jan. 23, 2019) -- As a
Historically Black College and University (HBCU) with a focus in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), North Carolina Agricultural and
Technical State University (N.C. A&T) has partnered with the National
Security Agency (NSA) for over 20 years. To celebrate its partnership, NSA
has named N.C. A&T a Featured School.
Featured School Series highlights colleges and universities that help
develop the talent and tools needed to meet national security challenges.
The collaboration between NSA and N.C. A&T is being highlighted on NSA.gov,
Intelligence Careers.gov and on social media. N.C. A&T has been a National
Center of Excellence (CAE) for eight years, promoting higher education and
research in the critical area of cyber defense.
The school is also one of 16 colleges and
universities across the country in NSA’s hiring and recruitment Campus
Ambassador Program (CAP), which serves to build and strengthen relationships
with select universities. Further, N.C. A&T hosted two GenCyber Camps in
2018 sponsored by NSA and the National Science Foundation, providing free
summer cybersecurity experiences for students and teachers at the K-12
level. “Academic partnerships are so vital to national security that NSA
invests more than $100 million annually in support of academic partner
programs, including educational grants, research and recruitment efforts,”
George C. Barnes, deputy director of NSA said. NSA aims to introduce a new
featured school every few months, highlighting schools designated as
Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) that have a depth and breadth of
engagement with NSA. The series will also have a presence on
IntelligenceCareers.gov and will be featured on social media.
North Carolina A&T State University is again expanding its
graduate-level cybersecurity program. David
Job opportunities are abundant; the White House cites estimates of the
demand for cybersecurity workers growing 12 times faster than the
overall job market. N.C. A&T will work with 12 other historically black
colleges and universities and two national laboratories to dramatically
grow the workforce of professionals, researchers and academics prepared
to lead the nation’s defense against cyber attacks. The
project will be funded by the federal
Cybersecurity Workforce Pipeline Consortium, a program to spark
interest in cybersecurity in students from elementary school to graduate
school. The $25 million, five-year program is sponsored by the U.S.
Department of Energy and its
A&T will be involved at the master’s and doctorate levels. Graduates
from the other colleges and universities will study and conduct research
at A&T. Research will focus on cyber-identity protection and privacy in
addition to cybersecurity in general.

$7.5 Million Contract with U.S.Dept. of Labor
The Division of Research and Economic Development (DORED) at North
Carolina A&T State University in conjunction with Lead Principal
Investigator Dr. Cameron Seay, in the College of Science and Technology,
has secured a federal contract through the U.S. Department of Labor.
The five-year contract, with a value of $7.5 million, will be utilized
to increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities and women in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related fields.
The contract will focus specifically on information technology as it
relates to talent development for mainframe computers, on which the
global economy depends. The term “mainframe computer” is usually
associated with the IBM Corporation. With the advent and wide
availability of micro-computing in the 1980s and beyond, mainframes were
targeted for extinction because of their immense size and cost. While
smaller computers with tremendous power have indeed revolutionized
information technology, the heaviest input/output functions such as
transaction processing, airline reservations and cellular signal routing
are still left to the heavy lifters: mainframe computers. Although these
big workhorses still play a vital role in the technology spectrum, the
isn't to expand mankind's body of knowledge so much as it is to expand
the local economy." "Its
[UNCG] historically strong programs in music, education and nursing are
not the kinds of programs that spin off research and
software companies to fuel high tech economies "
