Cyber security. It’s more than a buzzword on the evening news. The protection of information and systems becomes more important every day. The way we bank, shop, and live is directly affected by how well our information is guarded. The rate of growth for jobs in information security is projected at 37% from 2012 to 2022. This year at IEEE Rising Stars, we’re giving you a glimpse into the world of cyber! For more information, click on the following link: http://sites.ieee.org/risingstars/2018-competition/

“The Rising Stars Conference is a great opportunity for any young engineer. At this conference, I had a chance to network with a lot of great engineers, both present and future. Talking to all these great engineers allowed me the opportunity to work at Northrop Grumman for a summer internship. Due to that internship, I have a job offer before I even graduate! For any young engineer thinking of attending, I would give them a resounding “Do It!”. I can guarantee that you won’t regret it. ” – Joe Fercho, 2015 Attendee
