School of Science and Technology Intelligence
The National Intelligence University Anthony G. Oettinger School of Science and Technology Intelligence (MSTI) prepares students for careers at the forefront of science and technology intelligence.
The School of Science and Technology Intelligence offers a degree program leading to a Master of Science and Technology Intelligence degree.
Recognizing the importance of the use of science and technology in intelligence, while understanding the need for cutting edge research and instruction, scientists and engineers at the National Intelligence University established the Center for Science and Technology Intelligence. This set the stage for the founding of the School of Science and Technology Intelligence to advance instruction and research in S&T intelligence collection, analysis, and dissemination. The School of Science and Technology Intelligence was chartered on November 1, 2010. The Department of Education and Congress issued degree-granting authority in 2012.
Science and Technology in Intelligence
During World War II, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was the first to use science and technology as part of the intelligence process.
The concept of employing science and technology in intelligence has since changed dramatically. Inspired by Cold War fears and encouraged by prominent government advisory commissions, the use of science and technology quickly moved to a position of great importance among intelligence community activities.
