Course description

Both the Bachelor’s and Master’s programs are structured as intensive study tracks. The Bachelor of Science is completed in three years, while the Master of Science takes four years. These programs emphasize practical and system-oriented learning. Students are trained to think interdisciplinarily, focusing on larger system contexts. They gain skills in designing, specifying, testing, and accepting systems, often within international teams. The curriculum includes developing new defense and security systems. Students consider specific requirements like operability, material properties, and system attributes such as security against eavesdropping, disruptibility, extreme climatic conditions, interoperability, and robustness. The core of their work is integrating individual components and modules into comprehensive systems or subsystems for military use or enhancing civil security.
