Teaching Hardware Security at Southampton University: A Course Design and Evaluation

Halak, Basel (2017) Teaching Hardware Security at Southampton University: A Course Design and Evaluation At 2017 STEM Higher Education Academy conference.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Abstract. This work describes the design and evaluation of a secure chip design module for graduate students and junior engineers with electronics and computer engineering. This course has two broad goals, the first is to teach students how design complex systems on chips using industry standard tools and the second is to educate them on emerging hardware security threats and countermeasures. The design principles of the course are explained in details, followed by a summary of the evaluation processed we have used and how they helped to improve the quality of our teaching and enhance students’ experience.
