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.

“What cannot stand must fall; and the measure of our sincerity and therefore of the respect of men, is the amount of health and wealth we will hazard in the defence of our right. An old farmer, my neighbor across the fence, when I ask him if he is not going to town-meeting, says: No, t is no use balloting, for it will not stay; but what you do with the gun will stay so.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
