Enabling Student Access to Engineering Apps, Anywhere on Any Device

University of Maryland is migrating all their applications to servers with GPUs to virtualize all apps for their 38,000 students and enable access from anywhere, on any device. With the inclusion of NVIDIA Quadro virtual Data Center Workstation software and Tesla GPUs, the UMD community has the opportunity to work at the very edge of science, technology and research. Through the power of virtualization with GPUs, the engineering school has grown by 1,000 students with no additional labs needed. With Terrapin Works, a world-class digital manufacturing lab that can be accessed virtually, the University offers production and design services, as well as access to 3D printing equipment, across a multitude of locations, to students and the surrounding community, all thanks to virtualization. Join the webcast to hear more from Jim Zahniser, Executive Director of Engineering Information Technology and learn how UMD has become a digital manufacturing powerhouse.

The Evolving Role of the Higher Ed CISO

Inside the Ransomware Industry and its Impact on Education

Education is the most-targeted sector for ransomware attacks. For ransomware operators, colleges and universities look like the motherlode, with rich deposits of personal and financial data and practically limitless points of entry for getting at that data illegally. But how do they do it? Get an inside look at real-world ransomware operations: their business models, conversion rates, revenues and impact on victims. Security researcher Danny Yuxing Huang (formerly of UC San Diego, now a post-doctoral fellow at Princeton) has investigated the machinery of ransomware by masquerading as a part of its infrastructure — bringing a unique perspective and critical intel to those whose job it is to protect their institutions from these types of malicious activities. Join Huang with Campus Technology’s editorial director, David Nagel, for this one-hour presentation that will be packed with unique insights!

The Composites Manufacturing Simulation Center (CMSC) at Purdue University delivers Next-Gen Learning Environment for Student Success

The exploding pace of new technologies is changing the way we live, learn and work. CMSC, in conjunction with IACMI, worked with the Purdue University based HUBzero research group to construct a system that works to transfer knowledge and support manufacturers by sharing and integrating commercial design and simulation software with the supply chain to simulate the performance of complex composite manufacturing. It will be important for institutions to deliver digital resources, applications and next-generation learning environments that will connect education to engage, empower and equip students to learn in an effective, collaborative manner with real-world expert knowledge and complex skills. Students play a significant role and participate on industry-based IACMI projects.
