The U.S. Naval Academy‘s new chief wants his campus to become a focal point for cybersecurity education, with a $100 million building and new classes devoted to the emerging discipline, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Speaking with reporters at the academy’s on-campus museum last week, Vice Adm. Michael H. Miller said an introductory cybersecurity class would replace another required course in the curriculum for the Class of 2015, and he eventually expects the academy to produce graduates who focus on cyber warfare.

The academy has not yet requested funding for a cybersecurity facility, and the admiral noted the difficulty of asking for construction money in the current economy. He said the academy might first need to collect private donations for the initiative.

“It will probably take a joint effort,” he said, according to the Sun. “I’m just so firmly convinced this is the right place.”

As for the proposed change to the curriculum, Miller has yet to decide which core course will be replaced by cybersecurity.
