The Air Force Digital Literacy core competency defines a person who
uses technology to identify, critically evaluate and synthesize data and information; explore, create and manage digital content; and appropriately interact in a virtual environment.
Digital literacy education at AFIT focuses primarily on six major topics: digital engineering, digital acquisition, data science, cybersecurity, mission engineering, and joint all-domain operations.
The most recent National Defense Strategy and National Defense Authorization Acts describe the need for the Department of Defense to modernize analytical and decision-support processes to execute the national defense mission more efficiently and effectively. This requires an increase in the digital literacy of our Airmen and Guardians.
AFIT is a leader in providing graduate and continuing education, research, and consulting in competencies to improve digital literacy. Below is a list of primary graduate programs, continuing education curriculums, short courses and workshops, and research centers that support this directive.
