Center of Academic Excellence in Critical Technologies
A Consortium led by the University of Alabama in Huntsville with partners Alabama A&M University and Tuskegee University has been designated an Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence (IC CAE) in the area of Critical Technologies. The IC CAE program is a congressionally mandated program funded by the Department of Defense to promote the acquisition of diverse talent for the national security workforce of the future.
The Consortium offers an IC CAE Critical Technology Studies Program that provides students the opportunity to earn university credentials in Critical Technologies at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Key areas of study in the program are:
- Artificial intelligence
- Machine learning
- Data visualization
- Computational statistics/algorithm design
- Computer science analytical writing and briefing.
Expertise in these areas will enable the national security workforce of the future to "ensure the right data gets to the right people at the right time in the right form" (2014 National Intelligence Strategy).
