The first military Erasmus at MUT

On 22nd June 2018 the inter­na­tion­al course – Com­mon Mod­ule – Advanced Tech­nolo­gies in Bor­ders Sur­veil­lance at Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy was com­plet­ed. It was held under the aus­pices of Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence Col­lege.

It was the first ever train­ing at MUT for for­eign mil­i­tary stu­dents with­in the so called Mil­i­tary Eras­mus. Thir­teen stu­dents from Aus­tria, Bel­gium, the Nether­lands, Poland, Roma­nia and Italy were admit­ted as part of the first edi­tion of this course.

‘So far our mil­i­tary stu­dents have only been involved in train­ings abroad in oth­er Euro­pean mil­i­tary acad­e­mies. At last, we are able to return the favour. The first so called com­mon mod­ule car­ried out by MUT sends an unmis­tak­able sig­nal to our part­ner acad­e­mies – we are the out­right mem­ber of Mil­i­tary Eras­mus – we make use of edu­ca­tion offers and we pro­pose ours, in accor­dance with the char­ac­ter of our uni­ver­si­ty’ – says Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng., the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs.

This first ever course is the result of col­lab­o­ra­tion between five ele­men­tary MUT orga­ni­za­tion­al units: Fac­ul­ty of Civ­il Engi­neer­ing and Geo­desy, Fac­ul­ty of Cyber­net­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Elec­tron­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Advanced Tech­nolo­gies and Chem­istry and Insti­tute of Opto­elec­tron­ics. The sub­ject area com­prised tech­niques of geospa­tial intel­li­gence, appli­ca­tion of vir­tu­al sim­u­la­tion for train­ing of bor­der guards, bio­met­ric sup­port, detec­tion of chem­i­cal, radi­a­tion and explo­sive haz­ards, detec­tion and inter­fer­ence of unau­tho­rized radio emis­sions and night vision and infrared tech­nolo­gies.

The pio­neer­ing nature of the course was very well received by the par­tic­i­pants. They praised the orga­ni­za­tion, edu­ca­tion and lan­guage lev­el and, pri­mar­i­ly, the lec­tur­ers’ cre­ativ­i­ty and pas­sion.
