The School of Information Technology and Engineering (IT&E) has named Sushil Jajodia to the BDM International, Inc., Professorship in Information Systems. The two previous holders of this chair were Jim Palmer and Carl Harris, both of whom served as associate deans in the school.
The BDM professorship was established in 1985 by BDM’s president, Earle C. Williams. The professorship supports outstanding faculty in the development of both undergraduate and graduate programs in information systems. Lloyd Griffiths, dean of IT&E, says, “I am pleased that the selection committee has recommended professor Jajodia to this position. He has established a strong national and international reputation for his expertise in information security systems, a subject area that is fast becoming one of the most important new technology areas in the information economy.”
Jajodia also serves as chair of the Department of Information and Software Engineering, overseeing academic programs in information systems, software engineering, information security, and electronic commerce. He is director of the Center for Secure Information Systems and has served as principal investigator on approximately 40 research grants and contracts.
