Deadly Education -- Evaluating Which Universities Are Attractive To International Terrorists

Deadly Education -- Evaluating Which Universities Are Attractive To International Terrorists

Published by Kristan J. Wheaton
It is increasingly evident that terrorists are likely to consider developing and deploying weapons of mass destruction. To do such things, it is necessary to acquire a skill set reflecting advanced scientific or engineering training, which may be obtained at a university or college. By examining the criteria that terrorists might use to select a university for specific degree offerings, a multi-criteria decision-making matrix can be used to determine which universities are most likely to attract terrorists on the basis of course availability, advanced degree levels, and specific research opportunities. Universities can be further examined by studying the international student population in science/engineering disciplines. This project is a case study of such an analysis that examines colleges and universities in Germany to determine which universities are most attractive to international terrorists seeking to learn the skills necessary to develop or employ chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons.
