HEATHSVILLE, Va., March 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hickory Ground Solutions, LLC, based in Heathsville, Va., developed a curriculum for a six-month cyber engineering pilot course for the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

The course is designed to train those military and civilians who currently work in the fast changing cyber career field.  By training cyber space engineers using this innovative methodology, more emphasis is placed on creative thinking, problem solving and analysis rather than just learning new software and technology.

The course could help identify future cyber engineers who are innovative, highly motivated and are good team members as well as excellent problem solvers.
