Intensive introductory course on the proliferation of nuclear weapons

The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) invites graduate and post-graduate students in the fields of IT and engineering to apply for an intensive introductory course on the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

The course will take place from 23 to 25 February 2022 in Vienna, Austria.

The VCDNP will follow the Austrian government regulations regarding in-person events, and all participants should be prepared to show the necessary documentation confirming a low epidemiological risk.

The course is open to students currently enrolled in a European university, pursuing a graduate or post-graduate degree in the field of IT or engineering.

The language of instruction is English; therefore, good English language skills are essential for successful completion of the course.

There is no tuition fee, and the VCDNP will cover accommodation and economy class roundtrip airfare for students travelling from outside Vienna, but within Europe, upon request.

The deadline for applications is 16 January 2022. As space is limited, we recommend that applications be submitted as early as possible. Applications from qualified women are encouraged.

More details on the course and how to apply can be found on the VCDNP website ( and in the FLYER.
