UMBC is partnering with Northrop Grumman to attract fledgling cybersecurity businesses and generate job growth for the region.
“Cybersecurity is a significantly growing area for obvious reasons,” said Ellen Hemmerly, executive director of the UMBC Research Park Corp.
This new partnership will provide more internship opportunities for students, and new research collaborations for faculty members. “It’s really a win-win because they’re getting relatively inexpensive labor, smart kids who are studying in areas that are helpful to the companies,” Hemmerly said.
