Bookmark and Share


The University of Maryland and ManTech International Corporation (ManTech) today announced a two-year partnership to pursue advanced research in cybersecurity, including systems engineering and full spectrum computer network operations. Maryland and ManTech will engage students and faculty in a comprehensive research effort that explores ways to apply advanced cybersecurity techniques to evolving technologies associated with cloud computing and other developing trends, as well as emerging threats.

ManTech's participation in the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2) Corporate Partners Program will provide four undergraduate ManTech Cybersecurity Scholarships each year.  ManTech is also joining the Associate Partners Program at the Clark School of Engineering's Institute for Systems Research (ISR), which will provide two scholarships per year for M.S. in Systems Engineering students and opportunities for mentorship in ISR's capstone systems engineering courses.

"We are very excited about working with UMD to explore new ideas, techniques and practices in the field of cybersecurity," said H. Christopher Goodrich, senior vice president of ManTech's Mission, Cyber & Intelligence Solutions, SIGINT Solutions and Cyber Operations Business Unit.  "UMD has the talent and resources to bring new perspectives that will undoubtedly result in new ways to advance cybersecurity as emerging technologies continue to develop."

MC2 is jointly supported by Maryland's College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences (CMNS) and the A. James Clark School of Engineering. ISR is a permanent institute of the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

"This partnership with ManTech is truly special, providing a wonderful opportunity for our undergraduates and preparing them for the cybersecurity workforce," said Dr. Jayanth Banavar, dean of the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences.

"We believe this partnership will offer significant, long-term benefits for both of our organizations," added dean of the A. James Clark School of Engineering Dr. Darryll Pines.  "We look forward to developing close collaborations with ManTech in cybersecurity and systems engineering, and to rewarding opportunities for our faculty and students."
