Establish The RCES Center as the worldwide authority for the research and development of innovative capabilities in cyber, cyber-physical, and energy security, as well as in modeling and simulation of secure energy networks.To successfully fulfill our mission, we adhere to three guiding principles:
  • Develop partnerships with industry, government, and academia, which creates opportunities for the deployment and broad-scale commercialization of processes and/or solutions.

  • Deliver economic benefits (including job creation, IP licensing, and widespread recognition) locally, across the Paso del Norte region, and worldwide, particularly in Latin and South America.

  • Create curriculum and provide instruction to increase awareness of cyber, cyber-physical, and energy security throughout the utility, vendor, government, regulatory, academic, and media sectors.
UTEP has been designated by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE). The RCES Center is proud to be able to offer our partners, students, and faculty the opportunity to collaborate with UTEP’s Center for Information Assurance, whose courseware maps 100% to the relevant Committee on National Security Systems National (CNSS) Training Standards.
