Security Integration Project


Admission requirements

This course is part of the minor Security, Safety and Justice, taught at TU Delft by a lecturer from TU Delft. The course can only be taken within the framework of participation in the minor SSJ.


The course Security Integration Project represents the culmination of the minor Security, Safety and Justice. The knowledge students have obtained during previous courses within the SSJ minor is varied and diverse. This course has as its particular goal to synthesise and integrate the knowledge that has been obtained throughout the minors and challenges students to apply the different theories, approaches, and methods from SSJ courses to a real case. Students are encouraged to analyse a well-researched safety and/or security incident which took place in a multi-actor environment and apply knowledge they have gained in the SSJ (and if possible from their study discipline).
Students are encouraged to reflect upon whether and how the knowledge obtained can produce practical insights.

Course objectives

The Integration course at the end of the Minor is designed to help students to synthesise SSJ knowledge and skills. In addition, the course is designed to assess the student’s ability to integrate and apply theoretical and/or methodological knowledge on SSJ and to test their ability to apply SSJ knowledge and skills effectively, within the context of a real world case.

After this course you:

  • have insight in the impact of a multiactor-setting on a safety and/or security-related problems.

  • can analyse and synthesise knowledge from safety and/or security incident reports for research.

  • can apply the knowledge and methods taught within the SSJ minor to a real case.

  • have basic knowledge with regard to the execution and design of case study research

  • can design and conduct a (small) qualitative case study into a security incident.

  • can work and communicate effectively with students from other disciplinary backgrounds on designing and conducting a (small) joint security related research project.


The timetable will be communicated via Brightspace

Mode of instruction

  • Lectures

  • Small group exercises/assignments

  • Group discussions

  • Participation in a small crisis decision making simulation

Total study load: 140 hours
Lectures: 10 hours
Group tutoring: 2 hours
Self study and individual contact: 128 hours

Assessment method

  • An individual literature review (30%) with a minimal grade of 5.

  • Paper written in multidisciplinary groups (70%) with a minimal grade of 5.

Individual contributions should be listed in an appendix. Problems with group cooperation should be reported and will be taken into account if necessary. Buddycheck will be used to follow-up the individual contributions to the group report. Actions will be taken if there are students with overall low scores (both the self-assessment and the assessment by the peers), or if there are large differences between the self-assessment and the average given by the peers. If needed, an adjustment of the grade will be pursued.

In order to pass the course, the combined grade of both assessments (individual literature review and group report) has to be at least 5.8 out of 10.

A resit consists of rewriting the group report (at least 50% new text) in block 3
