Air University to Launch Cyber College

Air University plans to launch an Air Force Cyber College with the first class slated to begin later this year, said Air University Commander Lt. Gen. Steven Kwast. The college, which will be similar to the National Defense University’s Cyber Leadership program, will bring together the “brightest cyber minds” from the Active Duty, reserve component, sister services, and international partners to tackle today’s biggest cyber challenges, according to the June 9 release. “In addition to leveraging our existing capabilities within Air University, we have an ongoing outreach campaign to recruit top professors and talent from every pocket of the country,” said Kwast. The university plans to move “away from the traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms” and connect students and faculty with other universities within a four-state region of Montgomery, Ala., states the release. “The new cyber college will be a learning institution where students have collaborative access to great cyber minds at Air University from anywhere in the world,” said Kwast.
