Lydia Ray, Jianhua Yang


Vol. 11  No. 8  pp. 131-137


With the development of new computing techniques and the Internet, educating our college students to be equipped with security knowledge and skills becomes more and more important and urgent. In this paper, we propose a novel M-thread approach for providing security education to all CS major undergraduate students as appropriate for their concentration of study. Using this approach, small security modules for various courses will be designed and integrated into the existing computing curricula of Columbus State University. One significant advantage of this method is its ease of implementation. This approach can be successfully implemented into any undergraduate computing curriculum in any institution without incurring extra cost to students, faculty and the institution.
