A Research and Educational Framework to Advance Disaster Information Management in Computer Science PhD Programs
Project Summary:The objective of this project is to provide an integrated research and educational framework that will advance disaster information management in Florida International University’s (FIU) School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS) Computer Science PhD degree program. The outcomes are expected in three areas: (1) increased graduate degrees awarded with Homeland Security-related Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HS-STEM) related knowledge and skills, (2) engaging early career faculty to pursue HS-STEM research and education activities leveraging senior faculty research agenda in disaster information management, and (3) to enhance our computer science (CS) doctoral degree program course curriculum in areas relevant to HS-STEM. The pursuit of these objectives combined will create a sustainable and replicable research and education program that will create notoriety for FIU in the area of HS-STEM related expertise and will promote further research study at other HS-STEM interested institutions.
