Grant Activity

The visiting scholar is expected to teach undergraduate courses in Cyber Security and/or Digital Forensics. The numer of contact hours per week will be not more than eight. Those will include mostly lectures, as labs and tutorials will be handled by local teaching instructors and assistants. However, the visiting scholar is expected to provide a complete guide on how labs and tutorials have to be run, and work closely with TIs and TAs. He/she is expected to set up at least two tests and exam papers. All textbook requests will be forwarded to the BIUST Library to be purchased in necessary number copies. The emphasis should be on practical hands-on experience.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities‎.
