Introduction

The University of Pavia and the School of Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia present a new international Master of Science program in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards. The program is structured in two curricula:

  • Reduction of Seismic Risk (ROSE)
  • Hydrogeological Risk Assessment and Mitigation (HYRIS)

Courses are taught in English by highly qualified professors with internationally recognized scientific activities.

The Master in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards is jointly offered by the University of Pavia and the School of Advanced Studies of Pavia (IUSS).

Objectives

Environmentally-related risks are critical for human communities, productive activities, infrastructure networks as well as cultural heritage. In our modern societies, civil engineers play a key role in mitigating the risks caused by natural catastrophes such as earthquakes, flooding, and landslides.

The Master in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards is jointly offered by the University of Pavia and the School of Advanced Studies of Pavia (IUSS) and it provides advanced technical education in the field of structural and geotechnical earthquake engineering, hydraulic engineering, and hydrogeology.

The courses are taught by highly qualified local faculties as well as top international specialists invited to teach selected subjects.

The two-year program will provide students with the proper theoretical background in fundamental disciplines including applied mathematics, and solid and fluid mechanics to fully master the topics taught in advanced technical courses. As a part of their training, students will be required to spend a whole semester working on a master thesis where they may have the opportunity to participate in national and international projects. They may also be involved in the use of cutting-edge experimental facilities such as the EUCENTRE shake table, currently the largest and most powerful earthquake simulator existing in Europe.

Cooperation Agreements

Cooperation agreements of the University of Pavia and IUSS Pavia with a number of renowned academic institutions worldwide actively involved in risk mitigation from natural disasters are currently active. This allows for joint collaboration in research activities, an organization of international conferences and seminars, sharing of publications and technical data, and implementation of student exchange programs. Formal agreements have currently been established with top universities in Europe, the USA, Canada, South America, China, and New Zealand.
