Dynamic Simulation and Strategic Planning - PICX312

Dynamic Simulation and Strategic Planning is the capstone for the Security Studies program. It simulates a major security project which spans government-industry collaboration, operational planning, crisis response and policy evaluation.

This Capstone project will take everything you’ve learned in the Security Studies program out of the classroom and into an industry-relevant scenario which pits you against the uncertainty, complexity and dynamism which characterises real life security challenges. Throughout the course of the scenario you will make security arrangements, plan for contingencies, respond to incidents, activate continuity plans and perform an after action review and a policy evaluation.

Each scenario is designed in consultation with industry representatives from state and federal governments, private businesses and the not-for-profit sector. It will take insight, analysis, interpersonal skills, creativity and innovation to complete the project. The reward will be an unmatched and invaluable professional experience in security analysis.
