We would like to acknowledge the generous donation of training equipment from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories.

By partnering and collaborating with TTU, this grant is intended to

  • Develop a regional cyber-physical security training framework applicable to diverse South Plains industries such as Wind Energy, Electric and Water Utilities (expand to Oil and Gas in the future)
  • Develop cyber-physical security curriculum and employ instructors at the University/College level to deliver short-courses
  • Create a regional Cyber-physical security Consortium with university, college, and industry partnership. 

Education and Experience Requirements

  • Some college – Community college, 4 year college, in the study of Electrical and Water Distribution, Power Generation, and IT.
  • Minimum Qualifications - Some understanding of the Energy and Water Operations.

Training and Location

  • Distance modules will be made available on a learning management system. Students are expected to complete the online modules before the hands-on training.
  • Followed by Two-day hands-on training at Reese Technology Center, Lubbock, TX in Summer 2020. (Note: As the situation on the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, we will update the plans for hands-on training)

Program Outcome

  • Trainees will earn CEUs issued by Texas Tech University and certificates endorsed by Survalent for Program B track.
  • Trainees earning CEUs will be better prepared in cyber-physical security aspects in the Energy and Water fields, so aptitude and experience is more important than degrees or certifications.
