Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP)

The Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP) is an academic program designed for undergraduate students interested in pursuing degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. H-LSAMP is an alliance comprised of top area institutions, including: Texas Southern University, University of Houston, Houston Community College, San Jacinto College, University of Houston-Downtown, and most recently, University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, H-LSAMP was created to significantly increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees in STEM fields each year. As a nondiscriminatory organization, H-LSAMP accepts all qualified individuals as resources allow.

If you want to develop skills and experience that will position you for life-long success, become an H-LSAMP scholar. Apply today!

2015 Summer Camp | Cyber Security Institute

When: June 8th – June 10th, 2015. 9:00am ~ 4:00pm
Where: Delta Building, UHCL

About the Cyber Security Summer Camp
The University of Houston-Clear Lake Cyber Security Institute will host a Cyber Security themed Summer Camp from June 8 to June 10, 2015. The camp’s mission is to expose local high school students to Cyber Security. Cyber Security expertise is in high demand and offers a promising career path. The camp is designed to motivate students to continue their education in related STEM fields.  We leverage the domain expertise and computing facilities at our Cyber Security Institute to develop a well-rounded camp with following goals in mind:
  • Expand the camper’s horizon in the domain of Cyber Security including the technology, organization, and people factors.
  • Educate the campers about ethics in Cyber Security.
  • Inspire the campers with what Cyber Security entails.
  • Introduce the campers to a spectrum of information systems vulnerabilities, security threats, and possible countermeasures.
  • Teach the campers about various technical topics with a focus on network security.
  • Design relevant and interesting hands-on labs for the campers to practice what they learn in a controlled environment.
  • Create opportunities for campers to talk to cyber security professionals in both public and private sectors.
