TTI collaborates in launch of University of Cantabria Electronic Warfare Postgraduate Programme
TTI has joined forces with three other Spanish businesses in its field to launch the Electronic Warfare postgraduate programme, a new specialised course at the University of Cantabria in Santander, Spain.
TTI is partnering with ERZIA Technologies, Indra and Sener, in co-operation with the Defense Industry Cluster (CID) to provide guidance, assistance with the curriculum and financial support for the postgraduate course, which is launching as a specialised programme for 2022-2023 and will become a Master’s Degree the following academic year.
The new course meets a hitherto unmet need in the University of Cantabria’s curriculum for a specific programme on electromagnetic technology in defence, an area of increased importance given growing demand from governments around the world as well as industry in Spain for people with specialised skills in the field. The programme opens the door for engineering graduates to continue their studies and gain more detailed knowledge, potentially enhancing their employment prospects.
The intensive course will be delivered by university faculty alongside specialist officers from the Spanish Armed Forces (FAS) and engineers with extensive expertise in the field, providing 260 plus teaching hours across six different subjects on the syllabus. There will also be practical course modules provided in collaboration with industry experts, such as TTI, to round out the extensive programme.
With 25 years’ experience in developing high tech Radiofrequency, Antenna and Ground Stations solutions for military and security applications for ground, airborne and space domains, TTI is well-placed to provide specialist input and practical support for the new programme.
“We are proud to join forces with partners in ERZIA Technologies, Indra and Sener, and to be working alongside the Defense Industry Cluster to support the University of Cantabria in delivering this impressive new programme,” says Miguel Peña, Commercial Manager of TTI.
“This new course will further enhance the electronic engineering programme at the University of Cantabria, which is already recognised as a leading centre of excellence in Spain, as well as contribute to knowledge-based employment opportunities, to support the continued economic growth of the region,” he says.
