The School of Computer Science’s Military Education Research Group is delivering a training programme to four military personnel from NATO’s Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC).
Lieutenant Colonel Edward Wijninga, Lieutenant Colonel Pascal Gremez, Major Dariusz Madrzejewski and Major Selcuk Kazan began their course at the University of Lincoln on 12th May, 2014.
The programme was developed as a result of a visit from Air Commodore Tom De Bok, Assistant Director Transformation, and Colonel Luke Grossman, Chief of Staff, from the JAPCC in December 2013.
The aims of the programme are for the personnel to identify a potential research area and demonstrate practical skills in the development of this proposal.
Bruce Hargrave, Military Degree Programmes Coordinator, said: “The partnership with the JAPCC is a prime example of the strong links the University has with the military and it is a great opportunity for NATO personnel to see what we currently offer to the Lincolnshire RAF bases.”
The Military Education Research Group carries out research into the delivery of education and training programmes to those serving in the armed forces.
The main aim is to provide an opportunity for the development of lifelong learning throughout and beyond a military career.
The Group accredits and teaches several programmes for the UK military and NATO partners, up to Master’s degree level, primarily in the fields of Electronic Warfare and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance management.
The personnel will spend a week at the University before returning home to complete their assignments. Another programme will be run in the Autumn.
The JAPCC’s aim is to be NATO’s catalyst for the improvement and transformation of Joint Air and Space Power. Key decision makers provide effective solutions to Air and Space Power challenges, in order to safeguard the Nations’ interests.
