Security, Safety & Justice (LD)

Minor code: WM-Mi-099 How do we protect our society against terrorism? Can we secure the complex world of cyberspace? Are self-driving cars safe enough? Who is responsible if something goes wrong? How do we balance surveillance and privacy? The media pays attention to these questions with regard to safety, security and justice every day, so it is not surprising the topic deserves academic attention as well. This minor will provide you with the basic academic knowledge to understand the background of these questions better. The emphasis in the minor lies on the security element. The minor SSJ enables you to broaden your horizon regarding security-related topics in society.​​​​ Check all TU Delft minors View the brochure/flyer Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management ECs: 30 Start: September Language: English Maximum participants: 60 Non-selection minor: Selection minor: Criteria: None For Whom?

The minor is multidisciplinary in nature, and is taught by lecturers from both the Faculty of Governance & Global Affairs at Campus The Hague, and from the Faculty of Technology, Policy & Management of TU Delft. The courses take place in The Hague and Delft, respectively. When admitting students, priority will be given to bachelor students from Leiden University, TU Delft and a limited number of students from Erasmus University Rotterdam. If there are still places available, students from other universities will also be admitted. The minor enables students to broaden their horizon, working together on security-related topics with colleagues from other universities. What will you learn? The minor SSJ gives insight into security issues you read about in the newspaper: terrorist threats, criminality, integrated security and stability. Basic knowledge and research techniques are acquired centered around three themes: security, safety, and justice. The insights and analyses are applied to current topics, for example in the transport sector, critical infrastructure, and cyber security. Content The media pays attention to these questions with regard to safety, security and justice every day, so it is not surprising the topic deserves academic attention as well. This minor will provide you with the basic academic knowledge to understand the background of these questions better. The emphasis in the minor lies on the security element. The minor SSJ enables you to broaden your horizon regarding security-related topics in society. The knowledge base that this minor offers to analyse security-related topics is multidisciplinary, and centres around three broad academic themes, which are connected to specific academic fields: Security Safety Justice Security covers a broad range of research fields encompassing criminology, antiterrorism studies, and security management; the safety theme contributes via insights from risk management; and justice provides important concepts from legal studies, history and philosophy. Knowledge of essential concepts from all of these fields is necessary to understand and analyse today’s security and safety issues. This unique blend of knowledge from social and technical sciences allows students of the minor SSJ to address and analyse current-day security-related topics. To provide this broad spectrum of knowledge to students TU Delft and Leiden University set up a cooperation. Leiden University primarily contributes with knowledge from the fields of public administration and legal and antiterrorism studies. TU Delft contributes in the areas of risk analysis and risk management, technology assessment, and system analyses. Learning objectives After completion of the minor, students will be able to: Recognize safety, security and justice aspects in contemporary issues, and be able to synthesize scientific arguments for their presence. Form an opinion on SSJ issues, which is grounded in scientific analysis and argumentation. Apply basic analytical techniques to contemporary SSJ issues. These techniques include: system analysis, risk analysis and perpetrator analysis. Assess the value of scientific publications and use them in the analysis of SSJ issues, and be able to find publications that give deeper insight in these contemporary issues. Recognize the role that SSJ issues have in their own study major, describe this role and explain it to others. Handbook 2022-2023 Course overview The minor consists of 6 courses of 5 ECTS each and takes place during the first semester. The semester is divided into two blocks of eight weeks each. In every block, three courses are taught. Keep in mind: Leiden University and TU Delft have different start and end dates of the quarters and semesters. This means an overlap between the different quarters, and that the courses from TU Delft go on until January , where the Leiden University courses already end in December. Courses Topics of Law & Security (Leiden University) Researching Crisis and Security Management (Leiden University) Engineering Risk Management in Organisations (TU Delft) Security & Technology (TU Delft) Terrorism & Counterterrorism (Leiden University) Security Integration Project (TU Delft) The central theme in the minor is the prevention of harm caused by uncertain events (incidents). In our complex society, many things can go wrong, and specific groups in society have often gone to great lengths to make such events less likely or less catastrophic and knowledge about risk management has emerged. Think for example about aviation safety and security. Knowledge can be gained from these domains to understand how security problems can be approached. In other domains, safety and security issues and particularly potential protective mechanisms are still heavily debated. For instance, is the police allowed to hack criminals? The minor covers both incidents caused unintentionally (safety, such as accidents) and incidents caused intentionally (security, such as terrorist attacks). The question is not only how such harm can be prevented (such as by reducing the number of incidents or their impact), but also what side-effects such measures may have, and under which conditions these measures are acceptable or not. Lenses The minor covers the following lenses from which SSJ can be studied: Risk management The course Engineering Risk Management in Organisations provides a (mathematical) framework for reasoning about probabilities, frequencies, impact etc. of events (together known as risk), methods for assessing risk, and psychological views plus a management cycle for dealing with such events in organisations. Research methods The Researching Crisis and Security Management and Security Integration Project courses cover available methods for scientific study of safety and security issues and associated dilemmas, in terms of for example small numbers of events and secrecy. Law The Law & Security course investigates the relation between law and security, in particular the tension between security (preventing crimes) and basic human rights. Social sciences The Terrorism & Counterterrorism course zooms in on terrorists and their motives and behaviour as a source of risk, and how counterterrorism can help reduce the success of attacks. Ethics / Science and Technology Studies The Security & Technology course focuses on the role of technological developments in safety and security, in particular the assessment of potential safety and security issues of new technologies. Security Integration Project The different perspectives are integrated in the Security Integration Project.

The minor requires a solid entry level of physics and mathematics and is therefore only suitable to students who have sufficient background and being able to keep up with the level of engineering and beta-science at 3rd year BSc level. Most students from the eligible bachelor programs should in principle be able to follow and complete this minor successfully. Some of the eligible BSc majors may however have limited courses on mathematics or physics. If students however obtained high grades in those courses in physics and mathematics at high school, this should sufficiently compensate for the limitations in their current major. Delft University of Technology: all BSc programs. University of Leiden: Astronomy, Bioinformatics, Computer Science & Economics, Computer Science, Life Science & Technology, Mathematics, Molecular Science & Technology. Erasmus University: Econometrics & Economics, Econometrics & Operational Research, Econometrics and Philosophy of Economics. What will you learn? How does our universe look like and how is it formed? Can we detect life-forms on other planets? How can we monitor pollution and climate change? Space missions are key to answer these fundamental questions. It all starts with curiosity and the science that drives these missions. But the idea should also be feasible in terms of engineering. Moreover, new technology can sometimes enable new applications not thought of before. In Space Missions, challenging science and innovative engineering comes together. However, people working on these missions often have limited understanding of the other discipline which sometimes leads to wrong expectations, miscommunication or missed opportunities. The space sector is growing rapidly worldwide and missions become increasingly more demanding. This minor intends to provide the new generation of scientists and engineers with a broad understanding of the main disciplines involved, being able to bridge the gaps in this exciting field! The qualifications of a student after having followed the Minor include: The student understands the scientific goals of space missions and related instrumentation. The student can define and analyse missions for these applications and provide the key characteristics and fundamental physics behind it. The student is able to investigate a scientific application, starting from a specified need or conceptual idea, and derive the scientific and technical requirements related to it. The student is able to make a conceptual design of an innovative space mission including the preliminary system sizing, main subsystem trade-offs and a project plan. The learning goals , related to the qualifications, are that the student shall be able to: Understand scientific space missions and goals, motivate and quantify their main characteristics and create and evaluate the key requirements within the context of the scientific ambitions, innovative technologies and organizational resources and constraints. Describe, explain, compare and select instrumentation, spacecraft and ground segment components according to specific mission and/or subsystem requirements. Design and evaluate scientific space applications, compare this with existing solutions and identify novel applications relevant to the body of science. Design and evaluate the top-level of an innovative space system for a scientific application and compare this with state-of-the-art technology. Course overview The minor comprises specific courses on scientific applications of Space Missions and the engineering of spacecraft and its instruments.

Sustainable Urbanism - The Green-Blue City

Sustainable Urbanism - The Green-Blue City BK-MI-216 Dutch cities have to deal with urgent environmental problems. Climate change has become a visible problem in the urban environment of the Netherlands. Cities cope with heavy rainfall in short periods of time and heat stress occurs more often, even leading to more casualties. At the same time, it is clear that both the structure of our cities and their (public) spaces cannot be changed at will. They have a long term life span, creating a friction with necessary social and environmental changes. How to achieve this is the aim of this minor. The task of the urban planner is to introduce and design sustainable urban interventions, creating future proof neighbourhoods within the framework of a green blue city. In the Sustainable Urban Design studio ‘City and Public Space’ of this minor a sustainable urban design is the main subject. In this studio the minor students will develop design proposals, in interdisciplinary teams. Focus in the studio is on concrete sustainable design exercises. The course Basic Techniques for Sustainable Urban Design will make the minor students equipped and prepared to perform well in the design studio. They will apply theory and use their knowledge background in the group design process.
