Lt. Col. Fernando Maymi, assistant professor in the U.S. Military Academy's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, talks to college students about various projects cadets majoring in EECS work on Oct. 15 at West Point during the National Society for Black Engineers Fall Zone Conference. Maymi detailed a project from the computer science department published in the May 11, 2009, edition of the New York Times, where cadets were working on cyber security. Staff members from the National Security Agency helped with the project by hacking into computer systems while cadets attempted to block the invasion.
