Purdue part of a national research center aimed at hardening transportation systems against cyberattacks

Purdue University was selected as a major partner on a new University Transportation Center (UTC) focused on cybersecurity and funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

The new center for Transportation Cybersecurity and Resiliency (TraCR), led by Clemson University, is the first national security center funded by the DOT. TraCR will receive $20 million from the DOT over a five-year grant period.
