The Defence Systems Innovation Centre (DSIC) has announced that the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has joined as an Affiliate Partner.
This partnership will enable DSIC and SEI to collaborate on research and training opportunities for the Australian Defence community.
The SEI has a great track record with the US DoD and the global Defence community and is a thought leader in Software and Systems Engineering, Cyber Security, Process Improvement and Risk Management, so we are extremely excited by this collaboration,” Dr Sanjay Mazumdar, CEO DSIC said.
Our current plan of work includes joint efforts in cyber security, software process improvement, and software assurance,” said Dr Paul Nielsen, director and CEO of the SEI.
“This partnership agreement aligns with the State Government’s plan to attract high quality, globally renowned Universities to establish themselves in Adelaide and collaborate with local institutions and industry,” Employment, Further Education and Skills Minister, Tom Kenyon said.
DSIC is a national centre established to help Defence and Industry to address some of these challenges associated with Defence’s strategy of a networked battlespace by drawing upon the advanced research capability in Systems Engineering, Network Communications and Information Management in the University of South Australia, University of Adelaide and University of NSW.
In particular, DSIC has been focused on bringing together the expertise of the national and international applied research and training community with industry experienced practitioners to help de-risk current and future Defence programs.
The SEI works closely with defence and government organisations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Their core purpose is to help organisations to improve their software engineering capabilities and to develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
