Welcome, Defense Acquisition University Students.

Defense Acquisition University

"This partnership will help the participants better understand the cybersecurity impact in developing and managing acquisition programs, projects, and systems that continue to make our nation's warfighters the best-equipped armed forces in the world," said Acting DAU President Dr. James McMichael. The Defense Acquisition University enables the Defense Acquisition Workforce to achieve better acquisition outcomes. Everything that is done at DAU is for the acquisition professional -- from formal courses and continuous learning modules to knowledge sharing assets and consulting. As a learning partner, DAU and UoF will be with the acquisition professional in the classroom, online, and in the workplace -- whenever and wherever needed.

As malicious online activity continues to grow at an unprecedented rate severely threatening the nation's public and private information infrastructure, the need for qualified and certified cybersecurity professionals becomes even more critical. As a result, the UoF and DAU Strategic Partnership will facilitate the opportunity for the acquisition workforce to earn critical cybersecurity certifications, as well as master's and doctoral degrees in cybersecurity at the UoF by applying applicable work educational and training experience as credits toward UoF programs of study.
