In the fall of 1973 the universities of the German Armed Forces began their operation. These institutions are similar to those of other nations, one of which, the United States Naval Postgraduate School, where German naval officers have studied since 1963, is described in this article. After a short description of the school and its location, the offerings, operations, and curricula are reviewed. Finally, the feasibility of continued study at the school by German naval officers is addressed. The author is a former student of Ordnance Systems Engineering at the school.
The following is an English translation of an article that originally appeared in German in the October 1974 issue of Truppenpraxis, an official publication for armed forces officers of the Federal Republic of Germany.
