Objectives and Contextualisation

The security project is a basic tool for the security professional, public or private, varying the approaches and application tools depending on the type of risks and the nature of the spaces (open or fenced) and the activities carried out in it. (public, private or mixed).
In this regard, the measurement of the value and cost of the risks will be different, as well as the nature of the resources contributed. The subject Practicum II pursues the purpose of placing the theoretical knowledge acquired in the subjects treated until today, and in parallel those that will be taught throughout the semester itself. Complementary methodologies and alternative points of view will be explained and applied to the model followed in the first semester project.
As a novelty in relation to Practicum I, it will be the introduction of the concept of social utility function, the consideration of the preferences surveyed and the cost and benefit of public projects that benefit and affect collectivities. The chosen model is risk analysis and the application of adequate prevention and reaction systems and procedures in a municipal environment. Each student will choose the municipality where he / she resides or works or that he / she can know in depth. It will do so from the perspective of a professional, who integrated or hired by the municipal entity will try to locate the panoply of risks of the municipality itself, paying special attention to those of an environmental or catastrophic nature, to those of an industrial nature generated in the municipality itself or in its borders, with diffusion capacity or generalized affectation, and those derived from activities with mass concurrence or criminal activities that take place in public spaces.
The work will be carried out, preferably, individually or exceptionally in groups of no more than three components, in any case justified.
  • Learn to identify and evaluate problems that can generate risks and the different risks, both environmental, catastrophic, industrial derived from activities located in the municipality or events of the perimeter, such as those generated by activities of public concurrence, and those of a criminal nature or antisocial that can take place in public spaces at the municipal level.
  • Apply knowledge about the physical laws on which the catastrophic risks operate and the casuistry and modus operandi of the criminal risks, in order to prevent scenarios and scenes of risk events. Know methods and valuation system for different situations.
  • Understand and apply the correct application of them.
  • Train to obtain the appropriate conclusions and develop preventive and defensive strategies in relation to the different situations posed.
  • Create action plans based on the index of social utility preferences and within the limitations of the availability of media.
  • Prepare operational plans, protocols and prevention procedures, reaction action.
  • Know and apply the state of the applicable arts in open environments and for public use, or fenced and private with mass influx


  • Carry out analyses of preventative measures in the area of security.
  • Carry out scientific thinking and critical reasoning in matters of preventions and security.
  • Efficiently manage human resources.
  • Evaluate the technical, social and legal impact of new scientific discoveries and new technological developments.
  • Generate innovative and competitive proposals in research and in professional activity developing curiosity and creativity.
  • Identify the resources necessary to respond to management needs for prevention and integral security.
  • Plan and coordinate the resources of the three large subsystems that interact in questions of security: people, technology and infrastructures.
  • Respond to problems applying knowledge to practice.
  • Use the capacity for analysis and synthesis to solve problems.
  • Work and learn autonomously.

Presentation of the project in ICT support
The tutorials with the teaching staff will be arranged by email

It is important to mention that the main objective of the video classes is to resolve the doubts related to the syllabus, therefore it is essential to prepare the topics before each session.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Students will take continuous assessment tests (PEC) that will be delivered through the moodle classroom.

The students will carry out an evaluation by means of a face-to-face written test on the subject that will take place on the date scheduled at the School.

The FINAL TEST OF CONTINUED EVALUATION must be approved in order to add the other two notes.

This test may be oral at the discretion of the teacher.

In case of not passing the subject according to the aforementioned criteria (continuous evaluation), a recovery test may be done on the date scheduled in the schedule, and it will cover the entire contents of the program.
