The two new courses for 2016, ‘Introduction to Automotive Cybersecurity’ and ‘Model-based Systems Engineering with OMG SysML™ and IBM® Rational® Rhapsody’, will recognise the ongoing need for skills development in test and engineering, particularly within Functional Safety and Cybersecurity.
The Introduction to Automotive Cybersecurity course will give delegates an introduction to cybersecurity in automotive engineering and covers emerging automotive best practice (such as SAE J3061™), management of cybersecurity and the cybersecurity lifecycle. Additional course content includes the introduction to threat modelling, threat analysis and risk assessment, and cybersecurity countermeasures.
There has been a rise in the demand for courses such as these in recent years, with a desire for continuous connectivity driving the automotive industry. As vehicles become more connected, moving closer towards autonomy, the software complexity in vehicles will increase, meaning engineers will need to be adequately trained.
HORIBA MIRA has also introduced the Model-based Systems Engineering with OMG SysML™ and IBM® Rational® Rhapsody course, which enables delegates to understand the application of modelling to support systems requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities. This three day course is offered in partnership with MBSE Training and Consulting Ltd.
HORIBA MIRA’s re-launched courses for 2016 will include ‘ISO 26262 Awareness’, ‘Embedded Automotive Systems Using ISO 26262’, ‘ISO 26262 Safety Analysis Techniques’ and ‘ISO 26262 Internal Auditor’, due to upcoming changes to the ISO 26262 standard. ISO 26262 is the functional safety standard for automotive equipment, applicable throughout the lifecycle of all automotive electrical and electronic safety-related systems. Such changes will potentially see the safety standard used for trucks, buses and motorcycles, impacting the educational requirements of Functional Safety engineers.
