The SEI is one of the Leaders and caters in Software Engineering and Cybersecurity. It caters mostly to the defense industrial complex and is associated with Carnegie Mellon University.
At the SEI, they research complex software engineering, cybersecurity, and AI engineering problems; create and test innovative technologies; and transition maturing solutions into practice. They work with the Department of Defense, government agencies, and private industry to help meet mission goals. They have the following three divisions:
The CERT Division is a leader in cybersecurity and develops advanced methods and technologies to counter large-scale, sophisticated cyber threats, working closely with the Department of Homeland Security to set research goals in areas such as data collection and mining, statistics and trend analysis, computer and network security, incident management, insider threats, and software assurance.
Software Solutions Division
The Software Solutions Division (SSD) addresses the challenges of software-reliant systems having to deliver critical capabilities without compromising quality or reliability. SSD experts use an interdisciplinary approach to improve lifecycle engineering technologies and assure complex systems. They also provide support to individual programs to help them meet their capability goals, from acquisition through sustainment.
Emerging Technology Center
The SEI Emerging Technology Center identifies, demonstrates, extends, and applies emerging software technologies to meet critical government mission needs. They focus on promoting government knowledge of emerging technologies and their application while shaping and leveraging academic and industrial research.
