Kentucky's Cyber Engineering Pathway for Teens By Scott U'Sellis

  1. 1. CYBER ENGINEERING PATHWAY Scott U’Sellis Kentucky Department of Education Office of Career andTechnical Education
  2. 2. Cyber Engineering Pathway ■ Cyber Engineering is now a recognized career pathway in the KDE Office of Career andTechnical Education’s IT Program of Studies for the 2017-2018 school year ■ Thank you to DawnYankeelov andTALK for facilitating the discussion between the Office of Career andTechnical Education and the National IntegratedCyber Education ResearchCenter (NICERC) ■ Business and industry partners are very excited to see the creation of this new pathway ■ We have partnered with NICERC and have chosen to adopt the NICERC curriculum and the following courses: – Cyber Literacy I – Cyber Literacy II – Cyber Science – ComputerScience ■ Many schools are choosing to offer the complete career pathway sequence of courses while others are choosing to offer single courses to supplement an existing career pathway
  3. 3. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY CAREER PATHWAYS 2017-2018 CYBER ENGINEERING CIP 14.0902.00 PATHWAY DESCRIPTION: The Cyber Engineering pathway is a blend of programming, cyber security, and hardware engineering disciplines. Students will learn to research, design, develop, and test computer systems and components. The National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC) courses in the pathway use project-driven, application-based curricula that engage students at the secondary level. The curricula provides the teacher with a rigorous program that showcases a systems-level understanding of real-world applications of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The courses provide a hands-on, context-based approach that empowers teachers to prepare students to become the next generation of engineers and cyber professionals. The coursework explores topics such as robotics, electricity, and security concerns in today’s digital society. BEST PRACTICE COURSES EXAMPLE ILP- RELATED CAREER TITLESChoose (4) FOUR CREDITS from the following:  110110 Computer Literacy OR 060112 Digital Literacy  110222 Cyber Literacy I(NICERC)  110223 Cyber Literacy II(NICERC)  110224 Cyber Science(NICERC)  110225 Computer Science(NICERC)  110918 Information Technology Co-opOR 110919 Information Technology Internship Note: There is no cost to implement NICERC courses (outside of cost of equipment). Please see the link for further curriculum information. Security Systems Technician Computer Hardware Engineer Computer Network Specialist Computer Programmer Computer Scientist Computer SoftwareEngineer NOTE: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS AVAILABLE THROUGH NICERC DURING THE EDUCATION DISCOVERY FORUM (NICERC PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT).
  4. 4. Who MayTeach Cyber Engineering? ■ 1. IT certified teachers are automatically eligible to teach in this pathway – However attending the NICERC Cyber Engineering summer training is highly encouraged ■ 2.Teachers with certification in other content areas – This group must attend the NICERC Cyber Engineering summer training ■ Information regarding the NICERC training: – Venue: University of Louisville,College of Education and Human Development – Room: 201G – Time: 8:00 AM-3:00 PM – Dates: July 27-28 & July 31-August 1 – Note: A special thanks to Steve Swan at UofL for helping to secure the location
