Cyber Research Center


About Us




The Cyber Research Center (CRC) is located within the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY. The CRC is one of the oldest research centers, originally founded in June 1985 as the Artificial Intelligence center under an agreement between the United States Military Academy and the Office of the Army G2. Under this agreement, USMA was to create a research center to investigate how artificial intelligence would benefit the Army. In 1997, this mission changed to reflect the emerging dependence on information systems and the security vulnerabilities that ensued. The CRC focuses on cyber to this day, but with a broad scope that enhances all three of the EECS majors. The CRC's research priorities from the Dean of the Academic Board's guidance are:


Enhance Cadet Education

Develop Faculty Professionally

Address Important Issues Facing the Army and Nation
