h.jpgCongratulations to Drs. Hansuk Sohn and Mahdi Haghshenas-Jaryani for each submitting a proposal exceeding one million dollars in March 2022. Dr. Hansuk Sohn, Associate Professor and Interim Head of the Department of Industrial Engineering submitted a $1.2 million proposal to the Department of Energy. This proposal is a collaborative effort involving NMSU, the University of Texas – El Paso and Arizona State University to establish an education and state-of-the-art research consortium that will provide a platform to educate underrepresented minority students in pursuing careers in STEM, especially in the field of Artificial Intelligence-based Cyber Security and Threat Mitigation.

The project objectives are: 1) Developing next-generation student education with artificial intelligence and cybersecurity for nuclear security enterprise, 2)Establishing collaborative research groups for knowledge innovation and excellence within DOE NNSA interests, 3) Broadening and attracting the participation of minority groups and developing a student pipeline, and 4) Enabling sustainability of the research, education and student pipeline beyond the project period. This collaborative effort will also provide opportunities for faculty and students to engage with DOE national laboratories, such as Sandia National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, and others for science and education in conducting research projects and increasing student presence in bringing awareness to the developing trends in Cyber Security and Threat Mitigation.
