SoPA and Tulane University are excited to announce the transition back to campus for the fall semester. While we encourage students to continue to meet with advisors, faculty and staff remotely, our offices will be open for limited in-person visits. Beginning Monday August 3, Elmwood offices are open 8:30A.M.– 5:00P.M. Gibson Hall offices will remain closed as Tulane renovates new space for SoPA on the Uptown campus. All faculty and staff are working and available.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the SoPA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Return to Campus page for updates.

Information Technology Programs Labs at Tulane SoPA

Tulane SoPA Information Technology Programs feature labs in every technical course. These 250+ labs are designed to assist students in taking course academic concepts, and mastering these by conducting “hands-on” exercises that mimic real-world technical actions.

Some examples of course labs are:

  • Implementing NAT and Allowing Remote Access
  • Incident Response Procedures, Forensics, and Forensic Analysis
  • Crafting and Deploying Malware Using a Remote Access Trojan (RAT)
  • Social Engineering Using SET
  • Using Active Directory in the Enterprise
  • Deep Dive in Packet Analysis - Using Wireshark and Network Miner
  • Performing a Denial of Service Attack from the WAN
  • Performing a Denial of Service Attack from the WAN

…and many others.

Here, faculty member Dr. Chris Bogen and graduate student Rocky Deckert discuss our labs and how they serve to assist students both from an academic standpoint, and in preparing students for industry.
