Faculty of Military Science
The Faculty of Military Science is based at Saldanha, on the West Coast of South Africa, where it is housed in the South African Military Academy. The institution offers education and training for members of the Department of Defence at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Military Academy's resources for education and training are state-of-the-art. It also offers modern recreational facilities and accommodation of a good quality.
The Faculty works closely with the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) to meet what the latter spells out as its needs in terms of higher education.
The Faculty is made up of five academic schools. In two of these schools, the focus of programmes is technology-related; in two others, the focus is management-oriented. In the fifth school the focus is on security and on Africa-related studies. Our modular programmes are offered by means of three to six blocks of lectures lasting 10 working days each.
