Majors and Minors
There is no better way to serve the Army and the Nation than to earn a Computer Science, Cyber Science, or Electrical Engineering degree in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The U.S. Army depends every day on thousands of technologies at all levels from individual soldier to strategic decision maker. Leaders who understand these technologies and how to use them effectively are vital to our present and our future, in peace and in war.
The Computer Science (CS) Major at the US Military Academy develops fundamental competency in theoretical and technical areas of computing, as well as a characteristic style of thinking and problem-solving.
Cyber Science is the newest major at West Point.
Our Electrical Engineering Program is devoted to the idea of design-simulate-build-test. Cadets graduating the program have the necessary skills to see projects through from requirements to working devices that meet real needs for customers. For more information, contact the Electrical Engineering Program Director, Dr. Aaron St. Leger or the EE Program DAC, Dr. Pete Hanlon
Our Information Technology Program is devoted to the idea of using technology to computing systems to solve problems. Cadets graduating the program have the necessary skills to see projects through from requirements to working devices that meet real needs for customers.
For more information, contact the Information Program Director LTC Tom Babbitt or the IT Program Deputy MAJ Jay Fisher.
Our best advice, though, is to stop by the department and discuss your thoughts and goals with one of our Academic Counselors. We are located on the first floor of Thayer Hall (South end of the building). You can also click below to send the senior academic counselor an email message:
- Computer Science Counselor, COL Alexander Mentis
- Cyber Science Counselor, LTC Rob Harrison
- Electrical Engineering Counselor, Dr. Peter Hanlon
- Information Technology Counselor, LTC Tom Babbitt
A coffee or soda is on us!
