Security Integration Project

Course
2020-2021

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.

Description

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 synthesize 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 synthesize 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 synthesize 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.

  • 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.
