As more vehicles leverage digital technology for enhanced safety features and connectivity, they can also become increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Through the SHIELD Automotive Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence, the University of Windsor is training students in automobility cybersecurity to help protect personal information and vehicle safety.
As Canada’s first centre to research and teach automotive cybersecurity, SHEILD helps train engineering and computer science students in artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics to develop a skilled workforce prepared to manage automotive cyberattacks.
To help address related challenges within the field, SHIELD plans to expand their student programming across campus and train students also studying social sciences, law and business.
SHIELD also collaborates with manufacturers, researchers and the public to ensure that industry policies and standards reflect advances made in this critical and emerging field.
