The goal of the CAE Cyber Defense Education program is to reduce vulnerability in our national information infrastructure by promoting higher education and research in cyber defense and producing professionals with cyber defense expertise.

The program helps students to proactively increase their understanding of robust information assurance and cyber defense (IA/CD) technology, policy, and practices to work collaboratively as professionals to enable our Nation to effectively prevent and respond to a catastrophic cyber event. This program will contribute significantly to the advancement of state-of-the-art IA/CD knowledge and practices.


As part of the school's institutional outcomes, CCD graduates will be effective and ethical users of technology. Students will exhibit technological literacy and the skills to effectively use it; they will demonstrate the responsible application of intellectual property and privacy; students will use technology ethically and effectively to communicate, solve problems, and complete tasks; students will remain current with technological innovations.
