Trustworthiness and Education figure among the challenges and risks facing the constructive use of information technology. Security, reliability, survivability, predictability are among system attributes that are not receiving enough attention. Critical infrastructures are still vulnerable to attacks and accidental collapses. University curricula seem to be less responsive to trustworthiness needs of critical systems and infrastructures. In this paper, we propose two approaches for embedding trustworthy computing foundational topics within the knowledge areas of two computing-related disciplines, namely computer science and computer engineering.
