CERT-SEI

Software Assurance Curriculum

The issue

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsored the SEI to build a model curriculum for software assurance education and define strategies to implement it.

Our approach

The curriculum is the result of collaboration between researchers in the CERT Division at the SEI and a team of educators from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Monmouth University, and Stevens Institute of Technology.

The results

Graduates of programs based on the curriculum bring to a hiring organization the skills to deal with the security and quality of software systems in a comprehensive way.
