The enactment of the Law 39/2007 on Nov. 19th regarding the military career and the implementation of the Bologna process in Europe have led to the reform of the Military Training and Education System of the Officer Cadets of the Armed Forces. Its main goal is to adjust military training and education to the new parameters of the general education system. On this way, it is possible to integrate the military training and education into the civilian academic scope.

The "Centro Universitario de la Defensa” (Defense University Center - CUD) is located within the grounds of the AGM and is in charge of the technical development of the University degree in Management Engineering.
This institution is within the System of Defense University Centers created by the Ministry of Defense which exercises ownership of such centers through the Under-Secretary for Defense.
This CUD is affiliated with the University of Zaragoza thanks to an Agreement of Affiliation signed by the Minister of Defense and the Dean of the University of Zaragoza. This agreement states that the university degree that students have to get is the degree in Management Engineering although without excluding other degrees that could also be issued in the future.
