Toward 21st-Century Cyber-Physical Systems Education


Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will conduct a study on the current and future needs in education for cyber-physical systems (CPS). Two workshops would be convened early on to gather input and foster dialogue, and a brief interim report would be prepared to highlight emerging themes and summarize related discussions from the workshops.  The committee's final report would articulate a vision for a 2l-st century CPS-capable U.S. workforce. It would explore the corresponding educational requirements, examine efforts already under way, and propose strategies and programs to develop faculty and teachers, materials, and curricula. It would consider core, cross-domain, and domain-specific knowledge. It would consider the multiple disciplines that are relevant to CPS and how to foster multidiscplinary study and work.  In conducting the study, the committee would focus on undergraduate education and also consider implications for graduate education, workforce training and certification, community colleges, the K-12 pipeline, and informal education.  It would emphasize the skills needed for the CPS scientific, engineering, and technical workforce but would also consider broader needs for CPS “fluency.”

Agenda
8:30 – 8:45 AM Introduction and Welcome

Jack Stankovic, Co-Chair, University of Virginia
Jim Sturges, Co-Chair, Lockheed Martin (retired)

8:45 – 10:00 The Importance of Cyber Physical Systems
What are CPS, and how does it relate to engineering, computer science, and other related disciplines?
What are some of the key applications of CPS? How do CPS help advance economically or societally important capabilities?
What sectors will depend most on CPS-enabled capabilities?
What role do CPS play in sustaining innovation and supporting U.S. competitiveness and economic growth?

David Corman, National Science Foundation
Janos Sztipanovits, Vanderbilt University [remotely]
Joe Salvo, GE Research

Moderator: Jack Stankovic, University of Virginia

10:00 – 10:15 Break

10:15 – 12:00 Current and anticipated workforce needs
What sorts of jobs require CPS knowledge and skills? (E.g., engineering design, test and evaluation, operations)
Where does one find this talent today? How much of the needed knowledge and skills are covered in undergraduate degree
programs or graduate education? How much on-the-job training is required?
What are expectations for the future size of the CPS workforce, in total or as a share of total positions?
How important is it to have a workforce of sufficient capacity and capability?

Dick Bulterman, FXPAL
Lucio Soibelman, University of Southern California
Craig Stephens, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering
Jon Williams, John Deere

Moderator: Bill Milam, Ford

12:00 – 1:00 PM Lunch

1:00 – 2:30 Knowledge , capabilities, and skills needed in a CPS Workforce

Each sector deploying cyber-physical systems has tended to work independently of others in developing the necessary science, engineering, workplace skills, and regulatory approach—reflecting in part the historically modest “cyber content” of most systems and organic efforts to solve the problems at hand. Today, there is growing interest in seeking advances with common application in science and engineering (including scientific and engineering principles, algorithms, models, and theories); tools (including programming languages and tools for reasoning about the properties of CPS); and building blocks (innovative hardware and software components, infrastructure, and platforms).
What knowledge and skills are common across sectors? What are sector-specific?
What are the core knowledge areas, capabilities, and skills that individuals working in CPS-intensive fields need? How do
they map onto traditional undergraduate degree programs and courses in engineering and computer science? What areas are
covered in graduate programs and courses?
Where are there gaps between what is taught and what employers need?
How do employees lacking needed knowledge or skills acquire them? How do employers provide these education and training
opportunities to their employers?

2:30 – 2:45 Break

2:45 – 4:00 Challenges and Opportunities in CPS Education

To make progress in the CPS education pipeline, it will be important to understand the nature of current barriers and to develop strategies to overcome them. One challenge is the multidisciplinary character of educational foundations for CPS literacy. Looking across computer science, electrical engineering, and other engineering disciplines will be critical. Moreover, the audience for education in CPS is not found only in a traditional academic context where disciplines and knowledge are relatively settled. The challenges also include re-educating today's faculty, devising new preparation paths for university computer science and engineering students, upgrading K-12 teachers and the K-12 pipeline, as well as the existing workforce. New modalities for lab-centric, team-taught, and online education are emerging, which merit investigation as potential tools for accelerating progress toward a more CPS-capable workforce and society.
Where are there gaps in courses, textbooks and other course materials, teaching tools, curricula, and degree programs?
What initiatives are underway to address perceived gaps? How can we assess their impact?
What are some of the obstables that need to be overcome? Can courses and programs be realigned as needed? Do we have the
faculty needed to teach CPS material?
Does our K-12 educational system provide the necessary foundation for later CPS education and work?
What are the barriers in the educational pipeline to developing needed CPS knowledge, skills, and capabilities?
What are some current programs/projects that are being developed to address these challenges?

Ryan Izard, Clemson University
George Pappas, University of Pennsylvania
