This academy-wide initiative also includes a new Center for Cyber Security Studies and support for internships, faculty and student research, new courses, and other programs.
The department is housed in a state of the art building overlooking the scenic Severn River. Our spaces provide outstanding office, laboratory, and research facilities for both students and faculty, including specialized labs for information assurance, networking, and robotics, as well as three micro-computing labs and two high performance computing labs.
The Naval Academy is an undergraduate institution located in historic downtown Annapolis, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Roughly half of the faculty are tenured or tenure track civilian professors with Ph.D.s who balance teaching excellence with internationally recognized research programs. The remaining faculty are active duty military officers with Masters or Doctoral degrees. Each year the academy graduates roughly 1000 undergraduate students with majors in the sciences, engineering, and humanities.
