The Technical Topics Seminar Program is designed to introduce Duke Engineering master’s students to technological changes occurring across engineering disciplines. Each seminar will focus on a single topic, begin with an introductory presentation to set a baseline level of knowledge, and be followed by short sessions that will brief students on engineering challenges, industry applications, and potential implications for society.
This first Technical Topics Seminar will focus on cybersecurity due to heightened cybersecurity challenges brought on by the pandemic-fueled increase in remote work.
