This Penn State Brandywine Junior Is Keeping Our Military Talking and Secure
Himani Vommi, a Penn State Brandywine junior, is busy these days writing computer code for Lockheed Martin, writes Mike McDade for news.psu.edu.
It’s all in a day’s work when you’re pursuing a BA degree in cybersecurity analytics and operations, one of the new degrees available at the Brandywine campus in Middletown.
Vommi is learning how to build cyber-defense strategies to protect digital information from attack.
Students pursuing the degree learn to recognize, defend against, and manage risks from threats to online information, data stores and networks.
Vommi has also joined a team at Lockheed Martin as an intern,
The team has been assigned to the U-2 Dragon Lady, a high-altitude aircraft operated by the United States Air Force.
Vommi’s work focuses on a military tactical data link that lets aircraft, ships and ground forces communicate in real time.
“It’s been a steep learning curve, but working at Lockheed is very rewarding,” said Vommi. “I’m really honored to be a part of this team. It’s amazing to think that some of the code I’ve written has been presented to government clients and will be used on the plane.”
