NATO Cyber Defence Centre mentors students

News by Tony Morbin

The CCDCE and students at CODE Munich are collaborating at Masters level on theses and mentoring.

NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (the Centre) and the Cyber Defence Research Centre (CODE) of the Universität der Bunderwehr München have signed a cooperation agreement offering Masters level students thesis research topics and a mentor from the Centre to exchange knowledge and experience between Centre's experts and university students.

The Masters thesis mentoring project concentrates on the technical aspects of cyber defence, offering the students an opportunity to work together with Centre's Technical Branch experts. “This is our first such cooperation agreement and we are quite excited about it,” Raimo Peterson, branch chief for the Research and Development Branch, said.

“It is definitely a win-win situation for both sides because we gain the most recent academic knowledge from a highly sophisticated research institute and CODE's students will benefit from a very skilled mentor whilst working on their thesis, not to mention the experience and contacts made during this period.”
