Full time September MSc 2 years

About the course

Natural and Human-made hazards are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and billions of dollars of damage driven by global warming, rapidly changing land use and expansion of the world population. Earthquakes, floods, landslides and other extreme events affect more people every year at an unprecedented rate. Appropriate strategies can mitigate the impact of these events through urban planning that integrates civil engineering, nature-based solutions, and appropriate zoning. Rapid processing of geo-referenced data, combined with risk modelling, can improve warning systems and save lives. Beyond these strategies, airborne and satellite images, and open access databases have been developed by Europe to help professionals in risk management.
