While advances in, and diverse applications of, technology are revolutionizing our way of life, they also expose us to numerous new threats. We must understand how these highly complicated and interconnected systems work, as well as how to employ and protect them. With these concerns in mind, USMA recently added a specific academic goal of ensuring that graduates can understand and apply information technology concepts to acquiring, managing, communicating, and defending information, solving problems, and adapting to technological changes. In addition to this specific goal, the academy has integrated applications of technology into all its academic disciplines. Our ubiquitous computing environment is an integral part of developing cadets' proficiency in the use of information technology.
