The Defence Academy - College of Management and Technology (DA-CMT) is a British postgraduate school, research institution and training provider formed in 2009 from five departments of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, and as such part of the British Armed Forces. Since 1984 Cranfield University has been the main academic provider of the college. A November 2005 contract extends the Cranfield relationship with DA-CMT to at least 2027.
The college is based, like the majority of Defence Academy institutions, at MOD (Ministry of Defence) Shrivenham, located between the villages of Shrivenham and Watchfield in the south-west corner of Oxfordshire (Vale of White Horse), and has training centres around the country. DA-CMT facilities at Shrivenham are run by Serco Defence.
The departments are: Centre for Defence Acquisition and Technology, Centre for Defence Leadership and Management, Defence School of Languages, Nuclear Department and the Defence Technical Officer and Engineer Entry Scheme.

“If the technology cannot shoulder the entire burden of strategic change, it nevertheless can set into motion a series of dynamics that present an important challenge to imperative control and the industrial division of labor. The more blurred the distinction between what workers know and what managers know, the more fragile and pointless any traditional relationships of domination and subordination between them will become.”
—Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)
