Thumbs up Coast Guard Academy to offer new major in cyber systems

Coast Guard Academy to offer new major in cyber systems
By: The Associated Press  
RE: https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-...cyber-systems/

NEW LONDON, Conn. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is now offering an academic program in cyber systems, its first new major in a quarter century.

The program beginning this fall reflects the maritime service's evolution toward conducting operations in cyberspace as it does at sea and by air, said Capt. Lee Petty, chief of the Coast Guard's Office of Cyberspace Forces in Washington.

"This is a new domain and we're approaching it in a similar vein as we do in these physical domains," Petty said.

The academy in New London is opening a cyber lab with dedicated servers, a new laboratory and a specially designed classroom to support the program. Kurt Colella, the academy's dean of academics, said the program will incorporate elements of fields including policy, law, ethics, operating systems, software design and intelligence.

Cadets attend the academy tuition-free and graduate as Coast Guard officers with a bachelor of science degree and a requirement to spend five years in the service. Nearly 300 students enroll annually.
