Lily L. Chang Award

During the final semester of the I School’s Master of Information and Cybersecurity program, students undertake semester-long capstone projects which cement skills learned throughout the MICS program — core cybersecurity technical skills, understanding of the societal factors that impact the cybersecurity domain and how cybersecurity issues impact humans, and professional skills such as problem-solving, communication, influencing, collaboration, and group management — preparing students for success in the field.

Top projects in each semester are awarded the Lily L. Chang MICS Capstone Award. The award was established through a gift by Lily L. Chang, VP of the Strategic Transformation Office at VMware.
